Bolton Pride Ltd is a not for profit organisation and to allow us to grow the festival we rely on donations and sponsors.

Sponsoring the Bolton Pride Diversity Awards

Last year the Bolton Pride LGBT Awards Dinner was attended by 250 people at the Bolton Whites Hotel where we honored those who had worked hard to help Bolton’s LGBT community as well as celebrate the start of Bolton’s first LGBT Pride festival.

The event was attended by Sir Ian McKellen as well as representatives from Bolton School, Bolton at Home, Greater Manchester Police and many other agencies and partners.

This year we are back at the Bolton Whites Hotel and we are forecasting an audience of 400 people shall be joining us for dinner with first class entertainment from Jordan Gray (BBC’s The Voice) and Ikenna (International Whitney Houston tribute).

The event will be hosted by Tower FM’s Jon Holling and it shall showcase seven awards, each one honoring an individual or organization that has supported Bolton’s LGBT community.

We have worked closely with last year’s winners and our partners to choose the award categories and we are looking to the public to make nominations which shall increase our community engagement.
