This Christmas, Market Place Centre Bolton are bringing their decorations externally and dedicating a 20 foot Christmas tree to support and raise money for Bolton Hospice’s Light Up A Life campaign.

As we reflect on what has been a very difficult year for all of us, we hope the Market Place Centre’s Christmas tree and Light up a Life will bring comfort to our Bolton community as we share our love for those who are ill or no longer here with us.

To help support Market Place and the Hospice this Christmas, please make your donation and dedicate your light at

Each donation will be acknowledged with a personalised Light up a Life card and your loved one’s name will appear in a special Light Up a Life edition of the Bolton News on 16th December 2020.

Bolton Hospice will be offering a virtual service, that will carry the spirit of a traditional service and will include beautiful performances from local choirs, traditional carols, readings, and a reflective moment of silence as we remember loved ones no longer with us. The Light Up A Life campaign is already open for you to donate now.

Bolton Market Place’s outdoor Light Up A Life Christmas tree will be being lit Monday 23rd November on the outdoor patio. Although we cannot currently welcome shoppers in to the centre, if you are passing by you may see an elf or two getting in to the Christmas spirit, making the final touches to the tree…

We are busy getting ready for Christmas and are really looking forward to welcoming every one back into the Market Place Centre as soon as possible!
