Disrupt? Peterloo and Protest Peoples History Museum

Disrupt? Peterloo and Protest Exhibition

It’s been 200 years since the Peterloo Massacre in Manchester in 1819 and this headline exhibition tells the story of Peterloo and its relevance today.

The exhibition examinines issues within our democracy that people are campaigning for, still now 200 years on.

The Disrupt? Peterloo and Protest Exhibition features objects brought together for the very first time including original Peterloo artefacts, as well as more recent pieces telling stories of protest. A short film is played especially for the exhibition that brings to life the story of Peterloo, protest, and the road to democratic reform.

Within the exhibition, there is a creative space where there is a Protest Lab; an experimental gallery for communities and organisations to use to share their views and ideas for collective action.

The museum is free to enter with a suggested donation of £5
