Gallery Oldham is inviting you to enjoy ‘Christmas Pandemonium’ on Thursday 5 December from 7pm.

Get into the Christmas spirit and join the creative poet Ian McMillian and the excellent photographer, Ian Beesley, for a special performance in the gallery.

Bring the family along and enjoy the festive performance of fun and laughter with an original improvised Magic Lantern Slide Show – and no, it’s not on PowerPoint.

Prepare to be amazed, amused and astounded by the verbal and visual display in this one off, not to be missed, event. 

The event is a ‘pay as you feel event’ and all the proceeds raised will be donated to the Springboard Oldham Dementia Carers group.

Rebekah Sutcliffe, Director for Communities and Reform, said,

“Christmas is a time for family, food, fun and celebration. 

“This event is for a great cause and one for all the family. The performance is just a small part of Oldham’s excellent Christmas events programme. 

“Oldham is a brilliant destination to visit over the Christmas period as it offers so much for our residents and festive visitors. 

“If this event isn’t for you, why not go to our events website, ‘Visit Oldham’ and see what else is on across Oldham?”

Booking for event is essential – we recommend booking early as the tickets will be gone before you know it.
