The Fabric of Bolton celebrates Bolton’s industrial heritage, from a fresh and less commonly heard perspective.
Five fascinating and different individuals reveal the untold stories of Bolton’s Black and South Asian textile workers, in their own words. First-hand testimonies of 1960-80s life explore racism in the workplace, multi-racial funk bands and even an MBE, weaving together the diverse threads that make up the fabric of the town.
The Fabric of Bolton is a documentary short film, as well as a series of individual, oral history interviews and archive photography of the period, that allow you to explore the themes of the film in more detail.
The Fabric of Bolton documentary short film will available to view online as part of Bolton Film Festival on Sat 9 October from 1pm (available for 48 hours).
