Rochdale Pioneers win Museum Competition

Congratulations to the Rochdale Pioneers Museum for winning the Museums at Night Connect10 competition. Fittingly for the museum dedicated to the founders of the co-operative movement, they won the competition by a huge popular vote of 41%.

The Prize will bring artist Susan Forsyth to Rochdale to create a candlelit, musical community procession through the ‘global capital of cooperation’ during the annual Museums at Night festival in May.
