This free exhibition explores the political and social background to the Peterloo massacre and Parliament’s reaction to it.

Researchers from Royal Holloway, University of London and the History of Parliament Trust contributed to the exhibition. They have discovered documents in the Parliamentary Archives relating to what happened at St Peter's Field in Manchester on 16 August 1819.

Visitors can explore this material on an interactive table. Some of the documents were used as reference material for 'Peterloo', the 2018 feature film written and directed by Mike Leigh.

Last entry is 5.30pm.

Officially you don't need a ticket to go into Westminster Hall, but it can save a bit of hassle if you book one via their website.
