  1. Oldham Histories Festival

    Comments Off on Oldham Histories Festival

    Oldham Histories Festival 2020 has gone digital.

    Oldham’s annual Histories Festival is your chance to find out more about the people, places, buildings and stories in your area.

    This year is a little different as we are unable to run the talks and behind-the-scenes tours that we would usually. Instead we’re offering a range of self-guided trails. There’s plenty to discover, whether you’re interested in heritage or just curious about the history around you.

    Our Histories Festival links to the Heritage Open Days and runs from 11 – 20 September 2020.

    All our trails can be downloaded from our Oldham Histories Festival page and are FREE.
