In this new exhibition, explore the experiences of the hundreds of children who worked at Quarry Bank and discover how children’s rights have changed over time.

2019 marks 200 years since the Peterloo Massacre, a key moment in British history when working people marched to demand their right to a voice and were cut down. In the aftermath of the massacre there was increased demand for representation and opportunity.

Featuring new protest banners created by Ed Hall with help from local schools and communities, we’re exploring what the Peterloo Massacre meant to the people who were there at the time, and its significance today.
