‘Return to Peterloo’ by Robert Poole- Wednesday 18 March 2015, Manchester

The Friends of the Manchester Centre for Regional History are delighted to invite you to ‘Return to Peterloo′ by Dr Robert Poole (University of Central Lancashire) on  Wednesday 18 March 2015 at 6.30pm.

The Peterloo Massacre of 1819 is one the landmarks of British history. Notwithstanding the weeks of partisan legal argument and decades of noisy disputes about who was responsible, the sheer quantity of evidence is exceptional and the basic facts have never been in serious doubt. This talk will address what aspects of the history of Peterloo ‘we don’t know’ and consider  changes in our perspectives on Peterloo in recent years, as well as looking at new efforts at recovering the history of Peterloo in time for the bicentenary in 2019.

Please join us for this free talk and refreshments on Wednesday 18 March 2015 at 6.30pm in Room 230, Geoffrey Manton Building,(Rosamond Street West, Off Oxford Road), Manchester Metropolitan University, Manchester, M15 6LL (map here). All welcome.
