People’s Landscapes: Explore the places that have shaped the nation 

In 2019 we’re marking the 200th anniversary of the Peterloo Massacre, a turning point in our democracy, with a year-long programme that explores the role our places have played in social change. Through events, exhibitions and podcasts, you’ll be able to explore the untold histories that hide behind our landscapes.
