TradFest: 250 Co-op years with Ewan McVicar

Monday 7 May, 2pm – 3pm

TradFest is Edinburgh’s only multi-arts festival dedicated to traditional culture and folk arts. A series of afternoon talks and discussions at the National Library of Scotland feature radically different perspectives on culture, place, and Scottish society.

A joyful and illuminating talk on the co-operative movement in Scotland. From the Fenwick weaver pioneers to World War II; from ‘Bits of Sticks’ to homemaking and the ‘Divi’, archival footage and early advertisements provide some ‘out of the box’ perspectives on one of Scotland’s most influential organisations.
