As we draw nearer to the beginning of Peterloo 2019 and the programme of events and activities across Greater Manchester, we would like to invite you to the next Peterloo 2019 Network Meeting at the People’s History Museum (PHM).

Meet individuals from across the city region whilst finding out how you can shape and get involved in the Peterloo Massacre bicentenary commemorations this year.

There will be an update from Manchester Histories on the events happening to commemorate the 200th anniversary, we will also be joined by Councillor Luthfur Rahman who will present the winner of our Radical Read competition. Plus there will be a chance to hear from Manchester Museum about their new exhibition, Jallianwala Bagh 1919: Punjab Under Siege.

In 2019 Manchester Histories will produce a programme of public events, learning, creative exploration and community projects led by the themes of protest, democracy and freedom of speech for people across Greater Manchester and beyond.

Peterloo, one of the most remarkable moments in Britain’s struggle for universal suffrage ultimately marking Manchester as a radical city like no other. A programme of new work and special events that explore and commemorate the Peterloo Massacre are being planned by Manchester Histories & People's History Museum in partnership with a wide range of cultural organisations and communities from across Greater Manchester. We'll be bringing to life the story, legacy and spirit of Peterloo, sharing facts and insights, as well as highlighting events and ways that you can get involved.

Look out for the new Peterloo website peterloo1819.co.uk launching soon.
