Visual artists Spacecadets Air Design have designed the sculptures to inspire families to interact in a fun and playful way.

Jamima Latimer and Louise Miller, the people behind Spacecadets, have been creating inflatable art and helping to transform landscapes for more than a decade.

The exhibition will be launched on June 20 with an afternoon of family fun from 12 noon until 4pm.

It will include giant ladybirds, storytelling, craft activities for children and a tour of the Season’s Best exhibition at the gallery. And it’s all free.

To coincide with the exhibition there will be a host of activities taking part throughout the summer holidays.

Councillor Barbara Brownridge, Cabinet member for Neighbourhoods and Co-operatives, said: “We are pleased to welcome this exhibition to Gallery Oldham and the giant flowers will bring a lot of colour.

“With work well underway on Bloom and Grow the borough really has flower power this summer.”
