Democracy. Freedom of Speech. To the people at Peterloo,
each of these words had a powerful emotive force that changed the course of
history and heralded a new era in peoples’ rights.
The Peterloo Massacre took place in Manchester in
1819. A peaceful protest where people stood together for parliamentary
representation and Manchester became a radical city like no other.
hands-on, interactive writing workshops are open to all ages (16 years +) and
all experiences. Each will last 2 - 2.5 hours.
Don’t miss this empowering opportunity to explore what
democracy, protest and freedom means to us today in the context of the events
200 years ago.
