Peterloo: Witnesses to a Massacre

Our current exhibition 'Making the News: Reading between the lines from Peterloo to Meskel Square' includes a short film by Sophie Broadgate of the public launch evening, where Amharic speaking Manchester residents Binyam, Sara and Mas introduced the shared histories of St Peter’s Field and Meskel Square and interpreted artworks by Robel Temesgen.

The exhibition runs until 23rd September and is open daily except Sundays and bank holidays.

Making the News is part of a Manchester-wide programme of activities commemorating the bicentenary of the Peterloo Massacre, exploring themes of protest, democracy and freedom of speech.
