About this event

TEDxBolton is a licensed and independently organised TED event in Bolton, Greater Manchester that strives to re-create the unique experience found at TED where the world's leading thinkers and doers come together to share what they are most passionate about. At its core, the fundamental goal of TED and TEDxBolton is to foster and spread great ideas. We aim to provide a platform where the smartest thinkers, greatest visionaries and most fascinating speakers will be inspired and have the opportunity to inspire others.

TED itself is a non-profit organisation over 30 years old, devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or fewer). The diverse audience of CEO's, scientists, creative minds and philanthropists is as extraordinary as the speakers themselves, who have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Sir Richard Branson, Jimmy Carter, Bono, Professor Brian Cox and hundreds of others.

The Venue

For TEDxBolton 2017, we have secured the perfect venue of The Cloisters, a converted church dating back to 1512 with original features, arches & stained glass windows.

The Cloisters is located in Bolton, a town in Greater Manchester, North West England. Bolton is a former mill town with a largely industrial background. Like most northern towns in the UK, it features a wide cross-section of different industries, religious faiths and people from different social and economic backgrounds. This diversity is what makes Bolton great!
