As part of the People’s History Museum‘s Radical Lates series, bare witness to Living History performance of the Peterloo Massacre. One of the major events in Manchester’s history, and a defining moment for Britain’s democracy, which celebrates its bicentenary in 2019. Over the course of the year, the People’s History Museum will be hosting a range of events focused around the idea of protest in commemoration of the Peterloo Massacre.

On the night you will meet James, a naive businessman who wants to find out the truth about the Peterloo Massacre. Join him as he speaks to eye witnesses of the events at St Peter’s Field in 1819, to understand why they happened in the first place and how they are relevant to us today. Watch history come to life in an immersive reconstruction of the past.

This performance is free with a suggested donation to the museum of £5, and is suitable for ages 11+.
