About this event

A History of the Co-operative Movement; From the Rochdale Pioneers to the Present Day

Using materials from the Co-operative Heritage Trust Archive, this talk will give an overview of the co-op movement from its beginnings to the present day. It will cover the Rochdale Pioneers and their influence on the global movement, the introduction of the ‘divi’, and the growth of the Co-operative Wholesale Society (CWS). More than just a shop, this talk will explore how the co-op was an integral part of peoples’ lives in many other ways.

There will also be a chance to find out about the work of the Heritage Trust and the co-op movement today.
