The Oldham Pledge - Summer Programme

The holiday activities and food programme is a government initiative that aims to provide healthy food and enriching activities during school holidays, primarily to children and young people aged 5-16 who are eligible for free school meals. It is funded by the Department for Education (DfE). However, there are also a selection of activities and events that children who don’t qualify for free school meals can enjoy too, as well as younger and older children in the family. For all the summer activities available, please follow the link;

Love the Place you Live – The Oldham Pledge Culture Trail 

A family-friendly walking tour of Oldham's iconic buildings and public spaces. If you walk around our historic town, you will encounter a diverse culture that has been shaped by its residents and the history of the industrial revolution. Oldham was transformed in the 1800s to become the biggest cotton-spinning town in the world and Union Street, Greaves Street and Yorkshire Street still contain several grand historic buildings. The trail will focus on who and what makes Oldham, both in the past and in the present. The trail will also celebrate and promote the wonderful opportunities the town has to offer.

A map will be made available for families to walk the trail

Details are below:

Families can meet outside Gallery Oldham between 10 and 2pm on either Tuesday 31st August to Friday 3rd September

Lunch will be provided for the young people
