Linked with the commemoration of Peterloo this display looks back at Rochdale borough’s proud liberal heritage, celebrating the individuals and societies who have fought for social and political change over the last 200 years.

From local anti-slavery supporters, who starved during the Cotton Famine to fight for equality in America, to the Pioneers whose principles remain the foundations of the Cooperative movement today. The rebellious people of Rochdale borough have played an important role in pushing for change on a national, and even international, level.
