In August 1819, British forces charged into a 60,000-strong political rally in Manchester. 15 people were killed and 650 were injured. It provoked a national scandal and came to be known as the Peterloo Massacre.
In association with HistFest.com, Everyman is hosting a special screening of Peterloo. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with the film’s director Mike Leigh and historical consultant Dr Jacqueline Riding, chaired by acclaimed BBC historian David Olusoga.
