A THEATRE in Oldham is giving people the opportunity to meet up virtually and discuss arts and culture in the area, while consuming the nation’s favourite snack in the process.

The Coliseum is encouraging familiar faces and those who have not attended before to get involved in Culture and Chips.

Taking place each month, guests from Oldham and beyond will be invited to talk about their practice, their connection with the town and their vision for the future. Each event will begin with three questions and topics will be set by those in attendance.

During the Covid-19 restrictions these meetings will take place over Zoom with attendees encourage to have their own chips to hand to boost their enjoyment. When restrictions finish the theatre will be providing the snack in the hope of fostering a welcoming atmosphere.

The first of the Culture and Chips meet ups will take place on Wednesday, December 16, at 5pm. Tickets are free and can be booked through the Coliseum’s website.
