    Comments Off on Curator Talks via Zoom

    Have you always fancied learning a little more about the history of Oldham or Natural History? Have you spotted our monthly gallery talks and tours in the past but haven’t had the opportunity to take part?

    We have the perfect solution. Join our new live talks from the comfort of your own home, guided by our expert curators, find out stories from the past and learn about our amazing social history and natural history collections! There’ll be a chance to ask questions at the end.

    Each month there’ll be a new topic to explore; by taking part you’ll be supporting your local heritage and cultural sector. Talks are free, informal and last around 40 minutes with time for discussion afterwards.
