Saddleworth Show and WelliFest
Brought to you by:

The best community charity music event in Saddleworth!

The WelliFest and Saddleworth Show Organising Committee on behalf of Saddleworth and Oldham Metro Rotary Clubs, would like to express a big thank you to all our supporters and visitors who made our events such a huge success.  A grand total of over £29,000 was raised in 2022 for distribution to charitable and good causes.   Not bad for two enjoyable community events run entirely by volunteers.  Planning is already underway for this year so please make a note in your diary, WelliFest on Saturday 24th June 2023 and Saddleworth Show on Sunday 25th June 2023.  If anyone is interested in knowing more about either WelliFest or Saddleworth Show please get in touch.  Contact details are available on our websites.
