Our Community Stage offers opportunities for local talent to express themselves artistically. Our professionally run stage, sound and lighting system is open to performers from the Oldham area.

If you are thinking of performing, then please consider the following before applying. Please note: we do not pay for acts.

Time on Stage

We will consider the time you have requested on your application form. However, if there are an overwhelming number of applications, we may ask you to cut your time.

Backing Music

If you use backing music, you must supply it to us before the event, in an appropriate format for playback.

Securing your stage slot

Our final stage listings will be published at the end of May. We will let you know if your application has been successful by the middle of May. If there are many applications we may have to select a certain number and reject others. Once again, you will be informed either way. But we will try to fit everyone in.

Please note. You must be willing to perform on a voluntary basis. As a voluntary organisation we have had to raise the money to pay for the stage, sound and lights.


We only provide the stage, sound, lights and Mics.
