George Street Chapel

Join our storytellers as they take you on an atmospheric journey through our historic chapel. You will not only tour the building and listen to our costumed storytellers you will also become part of the stories in the very places they happened.

On your journey back in time to 1851 you visit the inhabitants of the cellar dwellings and those who worshipped and preached at   George Street Chapel.  Your group will encounter real Oldhamers and enjoy a traditional wash day experience in Jackson Pit. Visit our school room and do as you are told as Miss Hopwood is very, very strict and will expect excellent behaviour in her class.

Finally, your group will enjoy an exclusive opportunity to eavesdrop on the goings-on and gossip in our Chapel, meet a visiting preacher and listen to the beautifully restored 19th century organ.
