Protest, Rebellion and Freedom of Speech: Peterloo 2019
In 1819, the concept of freedom of speech, protest and democracy were tested when armed soldiers charged at peaceful protesters.
Two centuries on, these principles are still under threat. This new commission tells the personal stories of two women linked across time and through experience as they struggle to rise up and find their voice.
Manchester Folk Festival is proud to present this new commission to commemorate the 200th Anniversary of the Peterloo Massacre.
