As part of our free centenary webinar series we've partnered with The Co-operative Heritage Trust for a unique webinar. With the 200th anniversary of the Peterloo Massacre approaching, we're exploring the legacy of that event and its links co-operative heritage. 

Peterloo was undoubtedly a moment in history that galvanised political opinion and radical action. Join us as we examine some of the rumours and stories from the time and how the events of that fateful day contributed to the growth of co-operation. 

What did Peterloo mean to the original pioneers and what does it mean to co-operation today? Did Peterloo act as a catalyst for the start of the co-operative movement? How were the original pioneers involved and what influence did it have on their political leanings?

Join us on the 15th August as we unpick the answers to all these questions and more!
