BBC Blast is coming to Bolton from 8-10 October

Blast is the BBC's youth creativity service. From first-timers to emerging artists, Blast is a powerful and free resource which inspires and supports creative journeys for 13-19's.

Blast on Tour takes its mobile media village to around 30 locations each year. In 2008 it traveled the UK to provide free creative arts workshops and showcases for 150,000 participants. With purpose-built digital workshop spaces and a performance area, young people can book into activity led by BBC mentors and industry professionals or drop in to taster sessions, Q&A's with celebrity talent or just chat to one of the team in the Discovery Space.

Young people can book themselves onto workshops as individuals by going to the Blast website at: or by emailing

In addition to the main event on the 8-10th October, we will also be bringing the Blast Advance Tour to Bolton from 30th September to 3rd October. The Blast Advance reaches out to young people by travelling around the Bolton area, going to schools, parks and youth clubs offering drop-in taster sessions which will hopefully encourage young people to attend the main event. The Blast Advance will be at the following locations outside of school times:

* Wednesday 30th September, 6.30pm-8.30pm - Farnworth Youth Centre
* Friday 2nd October, 6pm-8pm - Leverhulme Park (in the car park by the Children's Centre)
* Saturday 3rd October, 10am-4pm - Town Centre, Victoria Square
