forms the first phase of Oldham's ambitious Cultural Quarter. The second phase, a stunning £13million new Oldham Library and Lifelong Learning Centre which is joined onto Gallery Oldham, opened April 2006. The building includes state of the art library and learning facilities. Architects Pringle Richards Sharratt, who also designed the award-winning Gallery Oldham, have made the most of stunning views across the moors in their design.
'The Cultural Quarter is also home to Oldham Theatre Workshop, Oldham Arts Development and Asian theatre company Peshkar, who are all based in the former Victorian museum building. Part of this building was refurbished in 2004 to create a new workshop and performance space for Oldham Theatre Workshop. Oldham Local Studies and Archives is situated nearby in the old Post Office building, in front of the former museum building.'
