The Spirit of Bolton event is organised by the Bolton Interfaith Council. A wide range of community and faith groups come together annually to celebrate community cohesion and cultural diversity. Saturday 6th July saw the 6th Spirit of Bolton. There was a real carnival atmosphere at the event and once again, the sun shone very brightly. Various performances included singing, poetry, dancing and lots of good food. The entertainment was wide ranging and drew the attention of many passers by. Guest appearances were made by Fabrice Muamba and Lofty the Lion. A poignant moment for me was towards the end of the afternoon when many groups and performers, young and old, all danced and sang together in the grand finale – very moving.
