North Manchester FM: A Helping of History, Tuesday 22 May, 12-2pm

Tune in to North Manchester FM on Tuesday at 12 for another Helping of History. This week, I’ll be talking to the Rochdale Pioneers Museum about the history of the co-operative movement and the museum’s activities.

The Rochdale Pioneers Museum exists to preserve the original store of the Rochdale Pioneers and to generate an understanding of the ideals and principles of the co-operative movement. The museum aims to preserve and maintain the store building and collections relating to the Rochdale Pioneers and the co-operative movement in general, and to provide an educational experience for visitors that includes the origins and development of the Rochdale Pioneers Society in the context of 19th century Rochdale. The museum is managed for the co-operative movement by the Co-operative College.

In addition to my interview with the museum, I’ll also be taking our usual look through Yesterday’s Papers, and you can pit your wits against the Who Am I? quiz – just how well do you know North Manchester’s landmark buildings?

Catch the show on Tuesday at 12 on 106.6FM (if you’re in the North Manchester area) or listen online (if you’re further afield).
