There are a wide range of Arts,crafts and outdoor events organised by Tameside cultural services from now until Christmas and into next spring.
There will be a return of Ballet Theatre UK with “The Snow Queen” – the Hans Christian Andersen story that was the basis of Disney’s hugely popular “Frozen” on November 22.
On October 31, Indigo Moon will be presenting a shadow theatre version of “Aladdin”, and on October 31, Tameside’s only championship section brass band, Ashton-under-Lyne, will be in concert. They return on December 11 to play all the Christmas favourites.
There are many country walks designed to appeal to people of differing ages and ability. Some are lengthy and take in challenging terrain. Others are gentler-paced and on the flat.
Many of the walks and events are tied to seasons and festivals. On October 28 there is “Scary Sunday”, allowing you to make magic potions, wizard wands and broomsticks.
The ever popular “A Dickens of a Christmas” is being performed on December 6, when an abridged version of “A Christmas Carol” will be performed along a 10-mile ramble from Gee Cross to Mottram.
There are exhibitions such as “Musical Chairs", a wacky new take on parlour games - and “Bright and Beautiful” which looks at Tameside's banner heritage.
Tameside cultural services are offering something for everyone, no matter what the age, in
