A huge thank you to our sponsors!

Our food and drink festival wouldn’t be what it is without the support of valued sponsors and partners.

Bolton School is the TES Independent School of the Year 2019 and was named the Independent School Parent School of the Year in 2018. Sited on a stunning 32 acre campus, pupils enjoy an all-through education at our co-ed Nursery and Infant School and single-sex Junior and Senior Schools.

Whilst pupils achieve outstanding exam results, they also develop through a wide variety of extra-curricular activities in sport, music, drama, outdoor pursuits, community action, volunteering and so much more!




Bolton At Home: Jon Lord, Group Chief Executive Officer said: “ Bolton Food and Drink Festival has rightly become one of the town’s most anticipated summer events and a cultural highlight of our year. What we love about the festival is that it showcases the town’s vibrancy and the skill of our local producers, growers, bakers, brewers, chefs and home-kitchen cooks. Most importantly, it brings communities together. Food and drink unite us and it’s great to see people appreciating the cuisine of different countries and cultures as one. That’s why we’re so proud to support it. This year will feel different of course but the festival will, as always, be a great opportunity to try new things. We hope it also inspires us to shop local, support home-grown businesses and grow some food ourselves where we can.”

Since 1876, family bakers Warburtons have been baking fresh bread each day from its hometown of Bolton. Now the business has 27 sites across the country, makes over 2m loaves, rolls, crumpets and bagels each day and delivers them to over 19,000 stores each morning.
