Bolton’s Manchester Tributes On Display

Tributes to victims of the Manchester terror attack have been made available to view by the public.

The items which were put on the steps of Bolton Town Hall following the attack in May have been carefully preserved to form part of a display in Central Library, Le Mans Crescent.

Candles, mementos, and handwritten messages have been placed in two display cases in the Upfront Area of the library.

Also included in the display will be some bee-themed artwork by schoolgirl Amy Bostock, plus a heart-shaped display of 22 bees from the Library and Museum Services’ natural history collection, to commemorate each of the 22 victims.

Amy who’s 14 and from Bromley Cross, attended the Ariana Grande concert on the night of the attack and produced a canvas featuring a honeycomb and bees as a way of dealing with what she experienced. The canvas has been reproduced into postcards which are being sold to raise funds for the Red Cross Appeal to help the victims and their families.

The cuddly toys that were placed on the steps have been cleaned and will be donated to charity at a future date.

Any remaining items from the tributes that are not on display will be forever kept in the museum’s collection.


Books of condolence which have been placed at civic buildings across the borough will also feature in the display.
