The 194th Anniversary of the Peterloo Massacre is to be remembered with a special history walk by Red Flag Walks next Saturday. The event will trace the history of the time as well as events of the day on August 16th 1819 when 15 people were slaughtered and up to 700 injured by the cavalry which charged a peaceful protest by 80,000 campaigners demanding the vote.

People in Manchester and Salford and beyond are determined that the infamous Peterloo Massacre is never forgotten.

The massacre occurred on August 16th 1819, when 80,000 campaigners met on St Peter's Field in Manchester to demand the vote, amongst other rights. They were met by the cavalry which charged into the peaceful protest, leaving 15 dead and up to 700 injured.

On Friday 16th August there's a Peterloo Massacre Anniversary Event at the Radisson Hotel with bands, poets and speakers (click here for further details) and on Saturday morning Red Flag Walks is leading a walk to re-trace the history of the day and its historical context.

The walk will be led by Michael Herbert who has been researching and writing about Manchester and Salford's radical history for many years. He recently did some filming with Miranda Sawyer and Maxine Peake for the BBC programme Culture Show (to view a clip click here)

"I will be setting the Peterloo Massacre in its historical context" says Michael "particularly the Manchester radical movement and events such as the riot in the Royal Exchange in 1812."

Saturday 17th August 11:45 £6/£5
