Join our community
At Hack Oldham we host a variety of community groups from a wide range of interests, hobbies and sizes. Whether it's technology-based, arts, crafts, entertainment or just socializing, our purpose-built event space can fulfil your needs. Joining the groups is free when you become a member of Hack Oldham. Non-members only need to pay a small contribution (currently £3) each time they attend.
Although most current groups meet in the evenings we do host groups in the daytime providing also they do not conflict with other events.
