The world has changed dramatically this year; since March we have all lived under restrictions to help slow the spread of Covid-19. This year Oldham Coliseum will deliver Messages from the Dame – an initiative to celebrate and thank individuals in Oldham and Greater Manchester who have managed to achieve something great or overcome something challenging during the Covid-19 pandemic.

People are invited to nominate someone to receive a unique and personalised video message from the Dame. Nominees could include an NHS worker, a teacher, a neighbour, a friend, a co-worker or a volunteer.
