Family Zone

Family Zone

Free, Family-friendly Entertainment – Open daily from 10am – Crompton Place

Don’t miss our all new family zone, offering great, free, activities for the whole family to enjoy. From traditional games including pool, pinball and table football to high tech ‘gaming stations’, a selfie booth and even a Pirate Training School, we’re sure the young and the young at heart will love this space!

We’re delighted that Bolton Library and Museum Service and The Octagon will be dropping anchor all weekend for The Great Pirate Adventure! Visit pirate training school and learn how to look, talk and act like a pirate. Sing a pirate song, make a pirate craft and dig for treasure. But, be careful, you don’t want to end up walking the plank!


With the fabulous magician Mark Daniel performing five magic shows each day (10am, 11.30am, 1pm, 2.30pm, 4pm), loads of arts and crafts as well as giant games there really is plenty of choice.

No pre-booking required just turn up (please note at peak times there may be a wait to access some of the activities). Children 14 years and under must be accompanied by an adult.
