A Call to Action in Oldham

Did you know Cap and Dove has a one-window museum? It’s small, but perfectly formed and means we can get objects to places museums just can’t go to.

In Oldham we’ll be displaying items around the theme of ‘Call to Action’. We’ll have the Tandle Hill Bugle which was used to rally enthusiasm and participation in the run up to the Peterloo protest of 1819.

We’ll also have the original Granelli’s Ice Cream horn. Did you know that Granelli’s was one of the first and oldest Italian ice cream businesses in Greater Manchester?

Ice cream has a long association with Greater Manchester and you can also find out more about its varied history from our Cap and Dove performer Mark Croasdale. Mark does a brilliantly funny and entertaining potted history of ice cream in his piece ‘We All Scream for Ice Cream’. Mark is perforning at all Cap and Dove stops. Highly recommended.
