Welcome to Oldham’s first ever Learning Festival – we’re glad you paid us a visit. This page contains everything you need to know about the festival so you can create the best experience for yourself. 

The aim of the festival is to celebrate learning and achievement across Oldham and beyond. All those with an interest in learning or leadership – no matter their professional background – are welcome. 

We’ve got one jam packed line-up of speakers, guests, fringe events and exhibitions for you to enjoy.

All events are free to attend due to generous sponsorship from the Opportunities Area Programme and the Oldham Education Partnership. It will be a fantastic experience for all and we hope to see you there at more than one of the days. 

The events have been split into days so you can find out about the events that matter to you. Have a browse, see what inspires you and book your tickets before they’re all gone.
