Oldham Flower Festival
See nature at its finest with the return of Oldham’s annual free Flower Festival in the town centre.
Taking place on Saturday 21 July, 11am-4pm, the event offers a wide range of fun flower and circus-themed activities for all of the family to enjoy.
With Blossom and Buttercup, stars of Cartoon Network’s hit TV show The Powerpuff Girls telling stories at 11am, 1pm and 3pm and a chance to meet the dynamic duo at 12noon and 2pm too – you don’t want to miss out.
Participate in circus skills workshops, run by Circus Sensible, around Oldham’s stunning town centre Wow Bed and catch shows from the madcap Madame Zucchini.
Don’t forget to get your hands dirty with some fun pot planting activities with Oldham Parks’ award-winning team of growers – and why not grab some expert advice from the team that you can put in to practice at home?
The fun doesn’t stop in the town centre though as Gallery Oldham (OL1 1AL) will be buzzing with a hive of activity for their free annual Bee Day event on the same day (11am-4pm).
With honey tasting sessions, street theatre performances from Oldham Theatre Workshop, and a chance to meet Oldham’s resident bees and beekeeping experts – where you can see how the inside of a hive works - ‘Bee’ sure to come down.
Free parking is available for up to three hours in all council owned town centre car parks. To qualify for this offer you must take a ticket from the pay and display machine and place it on view in your vehicle.
