The screening and Q+A will be simulcast to cinemas around the UK.

Two new posters - landscape and portrait - have been released. You can check them out below.

Peterloo goes on general release in UK/ROI cinemas November 2nd.

The official synopsis reads:

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 protestors 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.
