Event description

Description

Part of Stockport Libraries' programme of events commemorating 200 years since Peterloo.

Our Sam follows the story of a teenager, Samantha (a secret poet), who travels around her home town of Middleton observing and writing of the exclusion and voicelessness of the other young people she sees. On her journey she discovers the works of Sam Bamford, Middleton's most influential son, a weaver, wordsmith and parliamentary reformer. With Sam's encouragement that "there's strength in unity, lass" Samantha brings together the town's teenagers and finds a way they can represent themselves positively to the adult world. Samantha, like Bamford, finds the road to reform a treacherous one.

The Our Sam Heritage Project has engaged over 200 local people to uncover the story of Samuel Bamford to create this important film which celebrates his life.

Come along and see the film and have the opportunity to meet the actors.

Fully accessible venue, close to Stockport rail and bus stations.

Free refreshments.
