  1. Light Up Lockdown

    Comments Off on Light Up Lockdown

    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:

    We’d love you to post pictures of your creations which we’ll add to the Oldham Lockdown Museum.
