live@thelibrary: The Riot Act

Available to watch until 28 September on YouTube or Facebook

On August 12, 1819, just 23 years after The Peterloo Massacre, Lancashire cotton-workers again marched in protest at appalling pay and conditions. Reaching Preston’s Lune Street, the protesters were confronted by the authorities and read the Riot Act. By August 13 seven men had been shot and four were dead.

The Riot Act mixes humour and tragedy to tell the story of those caught up in the momentous events of Peterloo in 1819.
