The Co-operative Wholesale Society (CWS) celebrates its 150th anniversary this year. This temporary exhibition will explore the early development of the CWS from its origins at a Jumbo Farm tea party to its position as a major manufacturer.

Find out more about the people who helped to create the CWS, the difficulties they faced and their successes. Take part in interactive games and activities as you follow the exhibition through the museum, hold a tea party to learn more about the CWS Preserve Works in Middleton and share your own memories of the CWS.
