Subject: Review: ‘ROAD TO PETERLOO, Pete Coe,B Peters & L

‘The Road to Peterloo’ is a current musical presentation performed by Pete Coe, Brian Peters and Laura Smyth telling the story of the Peterloo Massacre. I believe that it may have had some performances at festivals in the summer. Did anyone see it and what was it like?
I would like to see it somewhere near where I live in Hull and if anyone living this way agrees then perhaps you could suggest it to your local venue ? Here is a link but information is limited

Laura, Brian and Pete present a trove of freshly-discovered material, with ballads sourced from Alison Morgan’s new book on the broadsides of the day, and from their own research, with many set to original tunes.

Ballads and songs of Peterloo by Alison Morgan is an edited collection of poems and songs written following the Peterloo Massacre in 1819. This collection, which includes over seventy poems, were published either as broadsides or in radical periodicals and newspapers. Notes to support the reading of the texts are provided, but they also stand alone, conveying the original publications without diluting their authenticity.

Following an introduction outlining the massacre, the radical press and broadside ballad, the poems are grouped into six sections according to theme. Shelley's Masque of Anarchy is included as an appendix in acknowledgement of its continuing significance to the representation of Peterloo. This book is primarily aimed at students and lecturers of Romanticism and social history.

The Coe/Peters/Smyth Road to Peterloo show has not been performed yet. It is due to be unveiled in 2019, to mark the 200th anniversary of the Peterloo Massacre.
Meanwhile, there is the Alison Morgan book (and she is also giving a paper at the EFDSS Song Conference, 10-11 November 2018 - Alison's paper is on the Saturday). And there's Mike Leigh's film Peterloo which goes on general release on 2 November. The film has some music.

At one time everyone did that period for O level.
Agitation and unrest after 1915

Peterloo, The Cato Street Conspiracy, The Mask of Anarchy by Shelley, Castleraragh and Canning...

I wonder if they do it nowadays...
