Event description

Description

It's 200 years since the Peterloo Massacre...

REVISIT THE LOCATIONS AND EVENTS OF THE MASSACRE WITH ENTERTAINING, QUALIFIED TOUR GUIDE SIBBY

16th August 1819: a summer's day and one of the blackest days in Manchester's history, when at least 18 people eventually died and over 650 were injured.

Peterloo Massacre


A huge crowd of perhaps 60,000, walked in processional parties from surrounding towns such as Bury and Stockport to St Peter’s Field, to campaign for the right to vote. Bands played and banners were held high. They expected to hear speakers discuss parliamentary reform, believing it would relieve the poverty they endured, but the rally never really started.

As the main speaker Henry ‘Orator’ Hunt began to address the crowd a military force, many on horseback, savagely dispersed the crowd using sabres, truncheons and bayonets.

Peterloo Massacre

Within just a few minutes many had died and hundreds were terribly injured.

Meet: Manchester Art Gallery steps, Mosley Street, M2 3JL

”Excellent tour on Peterloo. Sibby spun a fascinating story, delivering many nuggets of information that I didn’t already know. Walking around the actual locations where everything happened brought the tale to life. All in all a great experience.” C. Thomas, January 2019
