Following on from the panel event during Manchester Histories Festival to discuss how Manchester could commemorate the Peterloo massacre leading up to and during this anniversary, a further meeting has been arranged to continue these conversations by Manchester Histories and People's History Museum.
The panel covered issues around: what should the city be saying about Peterloo? how should it be remembered? how can people's knowledge and understanding about the importance of Peterloo to national democracy be raised?
In this meeting, we'd like to discuss the possible and structure for a Peterloo Festival and do some practical work around the united message that could come from everyone involved. Please also think about what Peterloo means to you in 10 words or less. There will also be chance for general networking at the start of the meeting too.
