ReAct is a new project, supported by the National Lottery Community Fund, that aims to increase wellbeing among over 50s in Bolton. It will include a year-round programme of Dementia Friendly Performances; an over 50s theatre group in a new area of Bolton; and Community Creators, an opportunity to design a variety of different activities for others.

We are aiming to increase opportunities for those who may not ordinarily visit the Octagon or take part in arts activities, and offer a programme that is accessible and appealing to a diverse range of people.

Due to essential social distancing to help prevent the spread of Covid-19, launching ReAct as planned has not been possible. However, the Octagon are creating new ways for those over 50 in Bolton to connect, stay creative and improve wellbeing in this time of social distancing - find out more
