Accelerate: Oldham Festival of  Transport

Art and Transport collide as the town’s annual car show is reimagined for 2019. Accelerate features displays of vintage vehicles, alongside SpareParts, the UK’s only festival of art, performance and spectacle dedicated to transport. The SpareParts Arts Parade will start at the Gallery at 12noon before winding it’s way up to Parliament Square. Expect a magical mix of mechanic, music and movement with an array of transport characters and contraptions.

Work with artist Rowan Taylor and join in our free, drop in, workshops to create wonders to use and wear in the parade.

Friday 31 May, 10am – 4pm
Saturday 1 June, 10am – 4pm
