Join members of The Co-operateve for a free exclusive Co-operative History Screening.

The Co-operative Group has a long and diverse history. This screening will give you an insight into the struggles the movement had to overcome over the last 160 years, but will also bring out some of the more light hearted snippets, all of which will explain how they became what they are today.

In conjunction with the North West Film Archive at Manchester Metropolitan University, the Greater Manchester North Area Co-operative Committee would like to invite you to this informal event, which will provide a guided screening of some of the most iconic films and adverts in the co-operative history.

To book your free place for this event please telephone Co-operative on 0161 827 6423, email or go to
