Unearthing stories of passion and protest 

Many of our places have connections to protests, mass social movements and the development of the rights we enjoy today. This year as we mark 200 years since the Peterloo Massacre, a turning point in our democracy, we’ll be exploring these relationships with a year-long programme of events, exhibitions, podcasts and more.
