I'm asking everyone to send an email to suggesting STRONGLY that The Peterloo Massacre bicentenary should be commemorated on the Google Doodle for 16th August. They receive hundreds of suggestions every day, but if we sent hundreds asking for the same thing they couldn't really ignore them. Please spread this message and, you never know, it might even go worldwide!!!


2019 is the bicentenary of The Peterloo Massacre. Coming soon to this website will be a 'Members Only' section which will have a vast quantity of information relating to every aspect of the story of Peterloo. At the moment, pages are being 'test driven' to ensure they run smoothly. We hope to make the whole section 'Beyond Peterloo' available by the end of March. Access will be via a subscription payment. Watch this space for further details soon.
