The Oldham Story is an exciting theatrical tour which takes you on an historical journey to celebrate Oldham’s 150 years as a world renowned industrial town.
Arriving in the cobbled streets of Victorian Oldham, you will be greeted by colourful characters from the past who will bring the story of Oldham’s industrial development to life.
Joining forces with wife Linda Jane Holmes (writer & director), Kelvin also teamed up with New Image (Public Relations) Ltd., to produce this Theatrical Time Travel Experience for Oldham Chamber of Commerce as part of the 150 year Oldham Borough celebrations. Charged not only with producing this mammoth event, charting the development of Oldham businesses over 150 years, Kelvin was also composer, lyricist and musical director for the production.
“Amusing show does the business!...highly entertaining show…there are some marvellous touches: one remarkable achievement is a funny song about the Pilgrim nut, which must count as a high spot in any lyricist’s career.”
