Co-operative education study visit - Rosedene Chartist Cottage, Bromsgrove

Join Co-operatives West Midlands for a study visit to Rosedene Chartist Cottage and Avoncroft Museum on 8 September 2018. The educational trip includes:

  • Guided tours of both historic sites
  • Workshops in the beautiful Long Room at Avoncroft
  • Lunch and cake
  • Free time to explore and network

The visit is priced £10 for members of co-operatives and £20 all others.

Rosedene Chartist Cottage was built in the mid 19th Century by the Chartist Co-operative Land Company and has changed little since that date. It was part of the great Rosedene Chartist Settlement at Dodford.  Although the Chartist Co-operative Land Company ultimately failed, it has important lessons for setting up new cooperatives.

Avoncroft Museum is a collection of rescued buildings including the historic tea room that was formerly owned by Shrewsbury Co-operative Society. The two venues are close together in the borough of Bromsgrove, to the south-west of Bromsgrove. A minibus from Bromsgrove train station will be laid on to pick up and drop off people coming by public transport. Car parking is available.

Members of co-operative should enter the coupon code Coop at the checkout.

A timetable for the day can be found here, along with booking instruction.
