Following a successful bid by Bolsover Council, £750,000 of European Regional Development Funding was secured to rejuvenate the town, boost local trade, and showcase it to visitors.

The Discover Bolsover team has unveiled a town logo and website, as the first step in a campaign to highlight Bolsover as a destination, and build on the huge popularity of English Heritage’s Bolsover Castle.
