Christmas across Rochdale

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 Rochdale. 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.
The Christmas lights switch on will take place at Rochdale Town Hall, on Saturday 25 November.

There are a number of events taking place at the Middleton Arena over the festive period for all the family to enjoy. You can see a full list of events here.

We have provided help and advice to keep your sled moving so you can prepare and minimise the impact on your Christmas travel and shopping trips. This page will be continually updated during this time.

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