UNITE AND BE FREE Peterloo: Songs, Satires, the Story
In mid October we, in collaboration with local folk group Northern Frisk, presented UNITE AND BE FREE, a show telling the story of the Peterloo Massacre, when 200 years ago a peaceful political demonstration in Manchester was attacked by sabre-wielding Yeomanry Cavalry. There were 18 deaths and over 600 injuries.
The Peterloo Massacre was extraordinarily well-documented at the time: not only in newspaper articles, court reports and eyewitness accounts but in poetry and song as well. Out of all of these we have constructed a narrative, the intention of which is both to outline the history and to entertain.
The October performance was so successful, and so many were unable to get a seat that we have decided to perform it again. Friday 15th November is the date – 7.30 at the Judges’Lodgings, Lancaster.
Book via email firstname.lastname@example.org, or telephone 01524 581241. Book early: space is limited!
PLEASE NOTE: places are limited and it’s important to book your tickets in advance – seats may not be available if you just turn up on the night.
