New Live at the library Published: Wednesday, 04th October 2023

The new live@thelibrary autumn/winter season is full of fun, intrigue, and drama for all ages – so why not see for yourself?

From gothic scares to hilarious monologues, from silent cinema to family favourites, there really is something for everyone.

This season’s offerings include: the English Touring Opera's Under the Little Red Moon, a film screening of the 1922 horror classic Nosferatu (with live accompaniment), a writing workshop with author Oliver Sykes (Fishing For Rainbows) and we celebrate LGBTQ + History Month, with the production of Transparency by Jaden Adams, a trans-male actor, who grew up in Oldham.

One festive highlight is the story of The Wrong Reindeer which is guaranteed to be a Christmas treat for all the family.

Councillor Peter Dean, Cabinet Member for Communities and Culture, said: “Once again our Heritage, Libraries and Arts team have put together a packed programme to keep people entertained over the coming months. 

“Our events cater for all ages and tastes so if you are interested I’d urge you to pick up a brochure from one of our libraries or go on line to see what’s on offer.”

Children under 12 months are free. All accompanying adults must 
buy a ticket to attend children’s performances.
