activ8 Awards and Showcase

Over the last twelve months, over 5,000 people and community groups of all ages from in and around Bolton have worked with activ8, utilising various art forms to make outstanding contributions to their communities and their own lives.

activ8 presents the third annual activ8 Showcase where the evening will feature some of the exceptional theatre, film, art and music projects created by participants of activ8’s workshops, projects and youth theatre over the course of the past year.

The evening culminates with an awards ceremony, which will honour deserving individuals. The awards are sponsored by The co-operative and the categories are:
  • Outstanding Personal Achievement and Development through Creative Arts
  • Outstanding Contribution to Bolton’s Communities through Creative Arts
  • Most Supportive Team Member
  • Most Memorable Individual Performance and Most Promising Newcomer
Winners will be published on the blog in due course.

Caz Brader, Head of activ8, comments:
“There are many achievements and success stories that often go unrecognised, such as a young person overcoming a confidence issue; we want to make sure these amazing people get the acknowledgment that they deserve.”

The Showcase takes place at the Octagon Theatre in the Main Auditorium on Saturday 5 July, 7.30pm. Tickets are available from £4 at the Ticket Office on 01204 520661.
