The community’s biggest event, this year’s main attraction is Circus Sensible, who will be performing shows in their Baby Big Top and holding circus skills workshops for adults and children across the two days.

There will also be other popular crowd-pulling attractions – both inside and out – including Punch and Judy, funfair and children’s rides and falconry displays.

Musical performances complete the packed schedule, with brass bands and Morris men both lined up to take centre stage.

Other attractions include competitions, Saddleworth llamas, Oldham beekeepers, dry stone wallers, sheep shearers, and craft, charity and trade stands, and food stalls.

The organisers – The Saddleworth and Oldham Metro Rotary Clubs – are keen to include all local organisations and are looking for charities, craft people, organisations and businesses who would like a stall or want to sponsor the show or attractions.
