Christmas across Oldham

What’s happening

The transport network is expected to be busier than usual over the Christmas period as there are a number of festive events across Oldham. Journey times are likely to increase during the run up to New Year, so you should plan ahead if you are taking part in, spectating or simply travelling around the local area.

Oldham’s Christmas Light Switch On takes place on Sunday 14 Nov between 1pm and 6pm in Parliament Square. There will also be a special Santa’s Reindeer Parade on Sat 4 Nov, between 1pm and 4pm, also in Parliament Square.

You can find out more information on all the events on Oldham Council’s website
