To mark next month’s anniversary of the opening of Rochdale Equitable Pioneers Society Store, the Co‑operative Heritage Trust is launching a new virtual tour of the museum.
It comes in the form of a 35-minute film made with the Co-operative College and supported by Co‑operative News. The film follows tour guide Payal Mistry on a journey from Rochdale to Manchester. She finds out more about the values and principles of the movement and how co‑ops support communities across the world.
It's a useful tool that can help co-ops introduce the movement to new members, staff and partners who may not be able to visit the Rochdale Pioneers Museum in person.
Watch the trailer below:
The film is available to buy or rent – and doing so contributes to the preservation of the Co‑operative Heritage Trust – a small independent charity looking after the records and original building that belonged to the Pioneers. Find out more here.
