Oldham College Student Representatives and Student Union visited 'the corridors of power' whilst on a two day trip to London. The trip focused on the tour of parliament and a meeting with our local MP's Debbie Abrahams and Micheal Meacher. Students and staff found the tour very interesting and enjoyed the question time with the MP's.
Whilst in London the students also visited City Hall, the gates of Buckingham Palace and theatre show Wicked at the Apollo Victoria.
We enjoyed our trip to the capital, visited places that we wouldn't have thought to visit and took in a theatre show - where the performance / set and effects wowed us all. A brilliant but tiring trip!
(You can see who fell asleep on the train home on our twitter link and previous blog!)
