Hello and welcome to Raring2go! the definitive guide of what to do and where to go for families this autumn!

I love getting out and about with the kids, we’re really lucky that there is so much going on local to Bolton that we can be literally spoilt for choice.  Fingers x’d for dry weather!

Whatever the weather we have loads of ideas for you...  if you're looking for some new things to do or places to go, then you've come to the right place as we are bursting at the seams with things for you!

Your autumn edition is out soon, until then you can keep up to date online as we're always adding stuff (plus don't forget our bustling Facebook pages - there is always something going on, on there!)  Plus, don't forget to register online with us (it's totally FREE, but could save you ££'s) and I'll update you each month with what's new 'in-between' magazines via our eNewsletter....

Don't let that stop you coming back on-line though, as we are always updating our What's On GuideSpecial Offers and Vouchers so make us your first stop when you get online - we'd hate for you to miss out on anything....

We'd love to know what you are up to - email us at and keep us up to date! Better still, why not tell us all about it via our "Roving Reporter" feature - email us all the details....

Enjoy autumn, when you've been there, seen it and are about to set off home from all these great places, don't forget to tell them you saw them in Raring2go! Bolton. 

Take care, speak soon....

Be safe this Bonfire Night

Be safe this Bonfire Night

Be safe this Bonfire Night by making sure that you, pets and your family know and follow the very important Fireworks Code. Have fun if you are going to an event or having friends and family round at home. It includes safety rules for sparklers too! You will also be able to download our Fireworks Code poster to display if you are hosting an event. 

The benefits of clubs and classes

The benefits of participating in activities and sports are well publicized, and when selecting classes, parents quite rightly have high standards and clear ideas of what they want their children to gain.
