Oldham Council has selected Interserve, the international support services, construction and equipment group, to deliver a £13m major centre for culture, arts, history and entertainment in the town.

The centre, known as OMA, will integrate the town’s existing Victorian Grade 2-listed former library and its current arts centre, and will substantially enhance the town’s cultural offering.

OMA will showcase the story of Oldham’s past from its time as the cotton spinning capital of the world to the present day, with gallery spaces, archives and public research rooms. The venue will house the borough’s fulsome collection of objects and artworks and will increase public access to heritage assets.
