What would make you take to the streets? One of Europe’s most thrilling theatre companies, ANU is creating a series of 15 artistic interventions in Manchester city centre, all completely free.
From theatre and dance to soundscapes and visual art, this day long immersion is inspired by those who died at Peterloo – but also by the lives, stories and concerns of those living in Manchester today, from zero hours contracts to climate change, forging a vital new connection between 1819 and our 21st century city.
Enjoy one of the day’s interventions at PHM, and don’t miss our exhibition Disrupt? Peterloo and Protest, telling the story of Peterloo, highlighting its relevance today.
Suitable for all ages
No booking required
Part of PHM’s year long programme exploring the past, present and future of protest, marking 200 years since the Peterloo Massacre; a major event in Manchester’s history, and a defining moment for Britain’s democracy.
