Horaah! It’s Half-term Holiday. Gallery Oldham, Arts Development and Oldham Libraries have got lots in store for you this February. We’re getting ready for Light Up Lockdown, a week-long celebration of creativity and light scheduled to run from Saturday 13th February to Sunday 21st February 2021.
There are no more zoom lessons, so let’s have some fun getting creative instead!
We’re unable to host Illuminate this year but we’re determined to bring some love and light to a long, dark and tough winter which will mark the end to our #GoCosy campaign. Why not join in? Visit our Light Up Lockdown webpage there’s something for everyone:
- Jam Jar Lantern Workshop
- Storytime and Origami Hearts with Oldham Libraries
- Light Painting with Smart Phones with Photographer, Tim Simpson
- Shadow Puppetry workshop with Gran and the Beka Haigh Frolicked Theatre
- Window Painting with artist, Isobel Pickup.
We’d love you to post pictures of your creations which we’ll add to the Oldham Lockdown Museum.

Following the latest Government lockdown guidance, we will be closed from Thursday 5th Nov and we look forward to welcoming you back soon.
We had an absolute hoot over the October half term and we would like to thank everyone who has visited us since we reopened at the start of September.
In the meantime, stay safe and remember that we’re still here for you online!
