The story of the Co-operative Movement from its roots in the early part of the 19th century when the Industrial Revolution resulted in exploitation and misery for many working people. Did it all begin at Toad lane in Rochdale in 1844? Mikron Theatre Company wander down the aisles of history to bring you the true story, told, of course, with a mixture of music, humour and sadness.

This production is in partnership with the Co-operative Membership.
