Bute Street Film Night: Peterloo

In partnership with Bute Street Film Festival, join us for an evening of art house cinema in the Hat Factory Arts Centre.

Film: Peterloo (2018) (12)

An epic portrayal of the events surrounding the infamous 1819 Peterloo Massacre, where a peaceful pro-democracy rally at St Peter's Field in Manchester turned into one of the bloodiest and most notorious episodes in British history. The massacre saw British government forces charge into a crowd of over 60,000 that had gathered to demand political reform and protest against rising levels of poverty. Many protesters were killed and hundreds more injured, sparking a nationwide outcry but also further government suppression. The Peterloo Massacre was a defining moment in British democracy which also played a significant role in the founding of The Guardian newspaper

Running time: 2 hours 34 minutes.

Short film: Hireth (2021)

A young man fighting in the war gone by awakens from potentially fatal slumber to be faced with the world as it is now - a tense and snarling place with echoes of his own past ringing in his ears.

Running Time: 20mins

Please note: There will be an interval after the short film and a Q & A after the main film.
