The Rochdale Pioneers

The Making of the Film


The Rochdale Pioneers was produced by The Co-operative British Youth Film Academy and is based on the inspiring story of how a group of locals realised the power they had in working together.

It is with this spirit of collaboration that Adam Lee Hamilton & John Montegrande directed the film, with many of the cast and crew being recruited from the local community to work alongside established actors such as John Henshaw and John McArdle. Only when you take a glimpse behind the scenes will you truly realise the teamwork that made this film possible.
