No matter what your interests – the countryside, drama, local history or even classic Hollywood cinema – Tameside Council’s winter events programme will have something to interest you.
Our cultural services team has put together a very varied programme for the period up to the end of April next year. It really is something in which the whole family can get involved. Just look at what’s on offer over the next month and I’m sure you’ll be convinced.
On Sunday, 13 October, Hyde Park is the venue for our scarecrow festival. The following Saturday, 19 October, Tameside’s Big Draw takes place at Portland Basin, giving you the chance to create your own piece of art while accompanied by musicians from the Royal Northern College of Music.
The month concludes with three events at the Festival Theatre, Hyde: Oldham Coliseum’s adaptation of the George Orwell’s classic novel “Animal Farm”, on Monday, 21 October; that most legendary of Hollywood blockbusters, “Gone with the Wind”, on Tuesday, October 22; and “Grandpa’s Railway”, a family play, on Tuesday, October 29.
That’s only part of the programme for one month, so imagine what there is to see over six. In November, Ballet Theatre UK returns with Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker” and in December we have our ever-popular pantomime, once again in partnership with Pendle Productions.
“Cinderella” will be staged at five venues around Tameside. I’m sure it will be an extremely popular production so I would strongly encourage you to book your tickets as quickly as possible to avoid disappointment.
