Oldham Festival Art Trail

31 May 2022

I have created a series of paste-ups across Oldham Town Centre.

Here you will find the map, extra info about the artwork and clues to help you find all of the letters hidden amongst the artwork!

 

Clues

1 Bee at Gallery Oldham

The Queen bumble bee is off to a royal engagement, on her way she flys over some of her favourite flowers -Lilly of the valley, an English Tudor rose, a Scottish thistle a welsh daffodil and an Irish shamrock…. But what else is growing amongst the flowers?……….

2 Miniature horses

The queen loves horses, even miniature ones! These two are ‘Windsor greys’ don’t they look fancy ? But what are they pulling in the carriage?………………

3 Swan on Union Street

A royal mute swan swimming gracefully, but what’s that floating in the water?! Has she stolen the crown jewels?! Is there anything suspicious about it?

……………….

4 Owl at Parliament Square

You’re invited to a jubilee tree planting ceremony, hold the spade for a picture opportunity….watch out the owl doesn’t fly off with your hat!! There’s some funny fruit growing on that tree!

……………..

 5 Corgi’s near the Odeon Cinema

Is that a corgi or a Dorgi? Do you want to take them for a walk? Take a photo holding the leads and share it with the hashtag #oldhamjubileefestival. Did you know the queen invented her own breed of dog?! What’s that in his mouth?

……………..

6 Ravens on Yorkshire Street

Two ravens are standing guard at the arcade. One of them has a special badge…….what is it?

…………..

7 Robins hiding near Spindles Shopping Centre

Voted Britains national bird, the robins are having a jubilee pic-nic – can you see the candle on the cake?

…………….

Unscramble the letters to find a hidden word

This piece is inside Gallery Oldham – there’s seven bees to find hidden within it.
