Enjoy learning with inspiring stories, memory-making objects and beautiful spaces. Develop skills, enrich your curriculum, support wellbeing and connect with local places and people. Tameside Council Cultural Services provide a range of learning opportunities at Portland Basin Museum, Astley Cheetham Art Gallery, Tameside Local Studies and Archives Centre and our unique countryside. Our learning programme has been developed with local professional creatives and shaped by feedback from teachers. We utilise the talents of our local artists and performers, plus those of our skilled staff, to deliver workshops that will engage and inspire children.
As well as a varied programme of workshops at our venues, we can deliver some of our workshops in your school and we have created lots of online resources to help support your learning. We have a wide range of 'Museum in a Box' loan boxes packed with objects and resources, and we can help with delivering Arts Award to schools in the borough.
