Welcome Back Bolsover

The Welcome Back Fund allowed local authorities in England to put in place additional measures to create and promote a safe environment for local trade and tourism, particularly in high streets as their economies reopened.
Junction Arts delivered the following exciting projects which reinvigorated Bolsover town and encouraged residents and visitors back into the town:

  • Bunting along Castle Street to create visual animation and a feeling of celebration especially in the run up to Christmas. We delivered a series of community workshops for local residents to produce unique patterns that were printed onto the bunting. The theme for the bunting is the Bolsover dragonfly.
  • Bolsover Dragonfly Sculpture Trail with 20 metal dragonflies installed around the town centre accompanied by a sculpture trail leaflet with map, for visitors to have fun tracking them down.
  • Unique story walks around the town linking to the dragonfly sculpture trail.
  • Love Bolsover including a Love Busk throughout the day and projections during the evening from Different Light Collective.
  • Artisan and Craft Market with musical and family entertainment throughout the day.
  • Family craft workshops at Bolsover Library

“I love our little town.”

“It was a brilliant night. I am so glad to have made the decision to live in Bolsover in 1999.”

“Thanks for putting this event on. Always lovely to see people come out for these things.”

Well done Junction Arts for the happiness spread in Bolsover throughout the day. Isn’t it wonderful what art can give to everyone?”
