Our temporary exhibition ‘Tea and Biscuits’ looks at the importance of tea to the early co-operative societies, and its place in the story of the Co-operative Wholesale Society (CWS).
We are looking at the place tea has in British society and culture, as well as they way it is grown and drunk around the world.
Dates running =29th July 2017 until 30th June 2018
The exhibition is the inspiration for a number of events as well as a programme of community outreach called ‘teatime traditions’. We will be looking at different traditions across the Rochdale Borough itself to engage with new audiences and encourage their participation in heritage.
