The Peterloo Massacre is a watershed moment in Britain’s struggle for universal suffrage that would ultimately mark Manchester as a radical city like no other. The RNCM and Manchester Histories have partnered up as part of this year’s Peterloo 2019 programme inspired by this pivotal event. Protest Music will bring together a community of creative artists – including songwriters from the RNCM, Manchester-based spoken-word artists and MCs, performers from arts and homelessness charity Streetwise Opera, electronic composer/producer Mandy Wigby (aka Architects of Rosslyn), and the Ignition Orchestra, led by Katie Chatburn – to create brand new, original protest music.
