OUR new brochure has ar­rived with all our new ex­hi­bi­tions and ac­tiv­i­ties de­tailed for Spring and Sum­mer. If you aren’t al­ready on our mail­ing list then call in to col­lect your copy or pick one up at a lo­cal li­brary.

We have lots of ex­cit­ing new things for vis­i­tors to en­joy, and are ca­ter­ing for all ages from ba­bies to pen­sion­ers.

As thoughts turn to spring and bet­ter weather we kick-start our fam­ily ac­tiv­i­ties with our next GO Wild! af­ter­noon on Satur­day, April 21.

Ex­plore the sea­sonal sur­prises that na­ture brings and have fun with a mix of science, na­ture and cre­ativ­ity. Some ac­tiv­ity will be out­doors, weather per­mit­ting, so come dressed for ex­plo­ration. The af­ter­noon is free of charge but places are limited, so book early to avoid dis­ap­point­ment. Book on­line at www. eventbrite.co.uk or call 0161 770 4742 for more in­for­ma­tion.

For adults, our new se­ries of pop­u­lar talks are back, with the first on Wed­nes­day, April 25, at 1pm fo­cus­ing on nat­u­ral his­tory. Please note that we have moved the times of our talks so that peo­ple can come dur­ing their lunch break. Talks last for around 20 min­utes and are run on a drop-in ba­sis, so why not try some­thing dif­fer­ent? Don’t for­get that Naked Bean café is on site for cof­fee, cake and lunch.

For those in­ter­ested in his­tory our col­leagues over in the Lo­cal Stud­ies and Archives at 84 Union Street run reg­u­lar talks and ad­vice ses­sions. The Old­ham his­tor­i­cal re­search group meets on the third Wed­nes­day of each month at 7pm and the next talk ‘ Votes for Women: Cam­paign­ers around Old­ham’ will be on April 18.

On Tues­day, April 17, we start a new pro­gramme of monthly ses­sions spe­cially de­signed for home ed­u­cated young peo­ple or those in al­ter­na­tive ed­u­ca­tion.

Cre­ative Spa­ces’ hands-on work­shops are ideal for any young per­son in­ter­ested in arts and craft. De­velop your skills as a young artist and achieve a Dis­cover Arts Award. Please con­tact us for fur­ther details.

On Satur­day, April 14, The Small Cin­ema re­turns with a won­der­ful fam­ily film - Coco (PG) won an Os­car for Best An­i­mated Fea­ture. We will be run­ning free fam­ily arts and crafts in the foyer from 12 with the film at 2pm. Film tick­ets are £3 which in­cludes a goodie bag for chil­dren. Book your tick­ets at www. thes­mall­cin­ema.com or by call­ing in at the Gallery.
