Bill Naughton’s Bolton: A Legacy

Live from Worktown is a resident-led community arts organisation working in
partnership to bring cultural activities to the heart of Bolton.

The project’s launch included a showing of the film Spring and Port Wine at Bolton Little
Theatre – seven members of Bill Naughton’s family took part.

The project centered around the Bill Naughton information Centre at The Market Place Bolton, which opened from 1st March until 30th June 2018. The Centre included displays of Bolton
during the 1930’s to illustrate the era of the Mass Observation, a display of Bill Naughton’s life, changing displays from local artist/photographers, a mock-up life-size 1930’s front room and a film poster wall.
