Lights, Camera, Action

We’re a film friendly authority with a wide spectrum of fantastic, unique locations, with great facilities, for all types of productions.

Only a 20 minute train ride from Manchester and a 30 minute drive from the city or the airport mean Bolton is an easily accessible town.

Our team work closely with Creative England, and our can-do attitude and willingness to go the extra mile ensures filming is facilitated professionally and effectively.

The extra mile

We will work closely with you from initial location enquiry, throughout the planning process to implementation.  Our aim is to make your journey with us as easy as possible, and we will go above and beyond to do this.

You may recognise some of our iconic architecture and outstanding countryside from productions including Peaky Blinders, Cobra, Intergalactic, Get Even, Coldfeet, The Boys, Traces, Coronation Street, Years and Years, Last Tango in Halifax and Bancroft to name just a few high profile productions!

“Bolton offers the production both period and contemporary locations. Having spent the day in the town we managed to achieve period London to high-end futuristic office. All sorted by the excellent team at the council. It’s a safe pair of hands, from a Location Manager’s point of view.”
