The recently refurbished Mercure Bolton Georgian House Hotel has unveiled a partnership with Lancashire Monochrome, a photography collective, to showcase a variety of their monochrome prints throughout the year in the hotel’s stylish new lounge.
Lancashire Monochrome, founded in 1996, is a forum open to any photographer committed to the monochrome print. The exhibition is a showcase of Lancashire Monochrome members’ best work. Photographs in the 14 frames will be refreshed every 3-4 months, and the work on display will be from one member or a joint display of work for guests and locals to enjoy in the newly refurbished lounge area.
Andrew Marland, the Exhibition Coordinator for Lancashire Monochrome commented: “We are delighted to present this new exhibition in the refurbished Mercure Georgian Bolton House Hotel. Lancashire Monochrome have a long-standing relationship with the hotel, who have displayed some of our photographs in the main corridor over the years, and it was a privilege to be asked if we would like to move ‘centre stage’ in the bar area.
The intention of the exhibition is that it will be themed depending on the member’s interests and latest projects. Whilst there is a collective preference for landscape photography, members have a broad range of photographic interests including coastal landscapes, urban and industrial landscapes, street photography, jazz, portraiture and abstract, all of which will be demonstrated at the hotel over the next year.”
The Georgian manor house hotel, which boats views of the West Pennine Moors, has also recently undergone a refurbishment to the ground floor public spaces including the reception area and two main event rooms. The Mercure Bolton Georgian House Hotel is one of the most desirable wedding venues in Bolton with a large capacity, sun terrace and landscaped gardens. The newly refreshed events rooms offer a contemporary and elegant space to hold business and leisure occasions.
Commenting on the refurbishment and partnership, General Manager of the Mercure Bolton Georgian House Hotel, Eric Spencer-Smith, said, “It is a real pleasure for us to partner with Lancashire Monochrome and to showcase the very best of their photography in our newly refurbished hotel. We believe this on-going exhibition will attract both local and further afield guests, as well as demonstrating our commitment to providing the best hospitality experience in Bolton and beyond.”
Built around a Georgian manor house, this superb Bolton hotel set in the beautiful Lancashire countryside has 9 function rooms for up to 300 guests, a health club, beauty spa, swimming pool and is ideal for business and leisure.
