GALLERY OLD­HAM

Glossop Advertiser - - News - An­nie O’Neill

WE have had some great news at Gallery Old­ham this week as we re­ceived our best ever rat­ing from the Visit Eng­land Vis­i­tor At­trac­tion Qual­ity scheme.

The cus­tomer care, knowl­edge and ef­fi­ciency of our vis­i­tor ser­vices staff was sin­gled out for com­ment, and a spe­cial thanks is due to all of our team for their hard work.

This week it’s all change as we say good­bye to one ex­hi­bi­tion and start pre­par­ing for our next de­liv­ery in ad­di­tion to re­ceiv­ing all your ex­cit­ing en­tries to the Old­ham Open!

There’s still just time to catch ‘Edge­lands’ ce­ram­i­cist Em­i­lie Tay­lor’s ex­hi­bi­tion, which we are tour­ing to three other venues in Eng­land when it leaves here. The ex­hi­bi­tion fin­ishes at Gallery Old­ham on Satur­day, September 9.

The Old­ham His­to­ries Fes­ti­val and Her­itage Open Days brochure has ar­rived and is avail­able from us and from venues around the bor­ough in­clud­ing Lo­cal Stud­ies and Ar­chives and lo­cal li­braries.

The pro­gramme has been or­gan­ised by Lo­cal Stud­ies and Ar­chives and is big­ger than ever with many new venues, walks and events across the bor­ough in­cluded.

We are de­lighted to be wel­com­ing the Old­ham Mi­cro­scop­i­cal and Nat­u­ral His­tory So­ci­ety to the Gallery on Satur­day, September 9. There will be a chance to meet our nat­u­ral his­tory cu­ra­tor, Pa­tri­cia Fran­cis, see real spec­i­mens and his­toric mi­cro­scopes and to take a tour of our nat­u­ral his­tory col­lec­tion at 11.30am and 2pm.

On Mon­day, September 11 it’s the turn of our so­cial his­tory cu­ra­tor, Sean Bag­ga­ley to lead a guided walk along Union St from 12-1.30pm. And if you’ve al­ways wanted to see the burial place of the leg­endary ‘Old­ham Gi­ant’ in the crypt of the Parish Church or un­cover some of the ghostly go­ings-on in Old­ham this is your chance.
