Castle House tours and exhibition

Until 28 Sep 2014, Castle House, Angel St. S3 8LS (near old market)

Learn about the rich history of the iconic Sheffield co-operative department store, now sadly closed. In 1964 Castle House was officially opened by Brightside and Carbrook Co-operative, supported by 106,000 cooperative members. With a food hall, clothing, furniture, flooring, offices and a restaurant, this for many working class people was the ultimate shopping experience, and member-owned rather than capitalist.The building is open daily 10.30am-5pm. Tours daily at 2pm can be booked at the Castle House information desk (open 10.30-5pm). Part of Festival of the Mind, organised by the University and the city of Sheffield.
