Yet everything needs a starting point so on Saturday 14th November Sound Social presents an all day event at the historic Commerce House for your aural and viewing pleasure. They have had an amazing response from artists, musicians and poets, support from local community network Antz Junction and the wonderful Bolton business Carrs pasties is kindly sponsoring the event.
