Oldham Nightlife, United Kingdom

Oldham is no London or Leeds, but still there is no denying that Oldham nightlife is vibrant to say the least. There is something for everybody – from the faint-hearted to the bold, from the regular visitors to the occasional guests. You can visit the eating and drinking venues or the area discos. Oldham has a pretty active music scene – you can hear everything from R&B to band music and all. There is even a theater in Oldham – the 585-seat Oldham Coliseum Theatre on Fairbottom Street where you can catch a late-night show.

Weekend nights are special, when the venues remain open till late in the night. Many venues do not even charge entry-fees on these special days. Before we let you know more about the Oldham nightlife venues, we would like to inform you that in Oldham you cannot take things for granted and go fooling around. The law-keepers follow a zero tolerance policy and you will need to check yourself or else a night inside the lock-up (instead of a club pr pub) cannot be ruled out. So, have fun, but do not just go berserk!

One aspect of Oldham nightlife needs to be discussed – there are special pockets in which you will find all the entertainment. You will like it if you go exploring these pockets separately, picking up one particular zone on one night, moving to another zone on the following night.
