Oldham’s Former Town Hall To Be Transformed Into A Wonderful Food And Drink Hall

By Laura Rogan

A welcome new addition to Oldham.

Bringing the magic of similar concepts such as Mackie Mayor and Altrincham Market to Oldham, the historic Egyptian Rooms at Oldham’s old town hall are set to be completely transformed, giving residents a new place to drink, eat and socialise. The new addition will join an ODEON cinema and a Nando’s restaurant which already reside within the Grade II listed space.

Housing six food and drink vendors, the new concept is set to inject a new lease of life to Oldham’s dining scene, providing a lovely, casual and open space for people to drink, dine and catch up with friends. It’ll even feature a similar feel to successful food halls such as Stockport’s Produce Hall and Altrincham Market, with modern touches highlighting historical features, independent food traders and long benches for people to share.

It’s currently been proposed that Oldham dwellers can expect a pizzeria, bar and coffee shop among other vendors, with space for around 200 people and plans for a lovely terraced area outside on Parliament Square – perfect for the summer months.


While the new concept would work perfectly with its terrace during the COVID-19 outbreak, it is not expected to be completed until 2021, with a predicted opening date around summer.
