We are delighted to announce a series of events in the next couple of months celebrating: 150 – THE LENTON SESQUICENTENNIAL
The 30th May 1863 saw the opening of the first co-operative society in Nottingham set up on the principles of the Rochdale Pioneers.
We will be celebrating the past, present and future of co-operatives and their members’ work, ideas and ideals with a series of events in June and July 2013.
These include a film screening, a historical walk and the publication of an exciting new book, adding new and fascinating facets to the rich and turbulent history of the people of Nottingham.
We will be starting with the launch of Chris Richardson’s new book at the Sparrows’ Nest:
‘A City of Light: Socialism, Chartism and Co-operation – Nottingham 1844’.
Please see the ‘City of Light’ website & the Indymedia calendar for details on the book and all upcoming events.
