Bee Day!

Saturday 15 July sees the return of our popular Bee Day. This is your chance to find out more about the Gallery’s most popular residents.

We’ve been delighted to host a hive of bees on our second floor balcony since 2015. They have made great use of the green library roof and produced delicious honey which is a great favourite and best seller in our shop. This year we’ve welcomed a second hive and revamped the bee-themed activities on our adjacent landing.

On Saturday visitors will be able to meet our beekeeper and talk to volunteers from Medlock Bees. There’ll be a chance to taste some of the honey from this fantastic allotment project in Chadderton. And watch out for the Bee My Baby street theatre performances from Oldham Theatre Workshop. We’re sure that the Gallery will be buzzing!
