Rotary International

The Saddleworth Summer Show is organised by two local clubs of Rotary International - the largest service club in the world. 

Surplus Funds from the show will go to Charities and Community Projects supported by Rotary.

Rotarians give their services free, so there are no administrative costs taken from the money raised.


Clara’s searching for future Stars

Enjoy  or join the Musical Extravaganza at this year’s Saddleworth Show

Clara Darcy

Clara’s searching for future Stars

Immerse yourself and celebrate a spectacular musical and performing arts extravaganza at this year’s show.

For example, young performers can compete for one of three age group trophies; Y1-Y6; Y7-Y9 and Y9-Y11.

And the show organisers promise nobody’s forgotten because even if you just simply take to the stage you will get your very own certificate for participating!

The expert adjudicator is Clara Darcy who has performed as a singer, dancer, actress and musician in Oldham and across the north of England.

Recently she has played in James & the Giant Peach, Miss Nightingale and Forever Young and earlier she took a lead role in the Coliseum’s staging of “Chicago”. Later Clara  was  touring - to rave reviews - for her part as Tara Fitzgerald in “Brassed Off”. This year she has been playing Inga in The  Demand.

Last year there was a  big and enthusiastic take up of performers from MAHDLO, Dobcross Training Band, Oldham Music Centre’s Electric Guitar Groups and the Caroline Winder School of Dance among others and we are sure it will take off just as well this year.

Polished Brass, the Abney Orchestra  and the Saddleworth and Oldham Rock Choir will be adding to the musical feast, but the Young Performers Showcase looks set to be an outstanding event.

At this stage there is room for youngsters who want to showcase their talents, which could include individual and small groups or bands presenting instrumental, vocal or active e.g.  dance performances.

Visit the Music Section of show website:  or contact the show’s Musical Co-ordinator Mel Farrar: e-mail:   Tel: 0161 633 0374 if you want to take part.
