175 years of Co-operation :  Celebration at 31 Toad Lane

On Saturday 21st of December 1844, the Rochdale Pioneers first opened their shop to the community, selling pure foods at affordable prices just before Christmas during a period of mass unemployment and hardship. 

We will be marking this anniversary in the middle of our festive season with a Rochdale based brass band, hot food and drinks and some traditional music.

This event does not require booking and is FREE / suitable for all ages.
