    Comments Off on Holiday At Home: Tiny Tourist Guide

    Thanks for joining us for our latest #HolidayAtHome adventure. This week we’re joined by artist Isobel Pickup. Be inspired by the history and nature of Oldham’s fantastic parks and create your own unique “tiny tourist” guide book to show all the best spots. Here are some ideas of some of the borough’s other beautiful destinations:

    We’ll guide you through making a booklet and filling it with your own comic style creations. Just watch the film to make your own tiny tourist guide book:

  2. Holiday At Home: Postcards from Oldham

    Comments Off on Holiday At Home: Postcards from Oldham

    To kick off our Holiday At Home activities we’re creating Postcards from Oldham with freelance artist Fay Buchanan.

    Long before texting and WhatsApp, postcards were a fun and cheap way of sending messages to family and friends.  Once a year, mill towns across Lancashire would close for a week or two whilst the workers headed to the seaside for their holidays.

    Holidaymakers would buy colourful and sometimes cheeky postcards to send back home, showing pictures and photographs of seaside towns such as Blackpool and Southport – and those unable to get away and were ‘Holidaying at Home’ would sometimes send postcards back, showing the smoky chimneys and mills of Oldham!

    We would like you to create and send us your own “Holiday at Home’ postcard inspired by Oldham. Simply design a picture for the front, add a message on the back, and upload your masterpiece here so it can be included in our ‘Lockdown Museum’ exhibition.

    Take a look at our short film to find out more and get some ideas and inspiration…
