Peterloo 2019: Public Network Meeting
Thu 11 May 2017, 17:00 – 19:00 BST
In 2019, the 200th anniversary of the Peterloo Massacre will be taking place remembering when cavalry charged to disperse a crowd of 60,000 - 80,000 people in St Peter's Field, Manchester. People had gathered to demand voting reform and improved economic conditions for working people, and the attempt to break up the meeting led to the death of 15 people and injuries to over 600.
In partnership with People's History Museum, Manchester Histories have been hosting a series of meetings for people discuss ideas, partnerships and plans leading up to the commemorations in Greater Manchester. Whether you have attended the past sessions or not, join us for this third session to continue the conversations.
Everyone is welcome whether you are an interested individual, a member of a history organisation, a committed Peterloo campaigner, an artist interested in responding to the commemorations, or a teacher planning something for your school. We want to share and hear as many opinions as possible.
Please share this event with any friends or colleagues who you think it will be of interest to.
If you have any questions about the meeting and how you could get involved, please contact Manchester Histories CEO, Karen Shannon on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0161 306 1982.
Strictly no food or drink in meeting room.
