16 October 2019 @ 18:00
John will discuss the situation on Tyne and Wear which led to this enormous demonstration in October 1819 two months after Peterloo. He will raise a number of questions including why there was no massacre, how people communicated, how many attended, the part played by women, arms or no arms and the aftermath. If you would like to know detail beyond what is possible in a lecture read: The Wind from Peterloo.
