Small Cinema Assistant - The Small Cinema Oldham

The Small Cinema was started by a group of young people through their love of film. We show regular movies at Gallery Oldham and community venues and are a project delivered by Oldham Council Arts Development.

As part of our family offer we provide accompanying craft workshops at showings which we devise around the films themes. We are looking for volunteers who are interested in delivering craft activities with children and families and who would enjoy helping us make these fun and accessible.
