Early Years

There’s always something to do at Gallery Oldham, even for our youngest visitors. Join our award nominated programmes and take part in some of our messiest sessions!



Whilst we can’t see you in person for sensory fun – why not join us digitally!

Each Tuesday we release a new sensory exploration on our blog, each one is inspired by the galleries collections and exhibitions. From mud painting to making your own treasure baskets we have plenty to keep you busy during lockdown and afterwards.

Treasure Basket – Scala by Jeffrey Steele
Exploring GO Explorers – families experiences of early years sessions

We would love to see your creations so please share them with us via Gallery Oldham on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or email evad.ouldokojie@oldham.gov.uk
