Win tickets to see Peterloo

Posted on: Thu 2 May 2019

Win one of ten double passes to see ‘Peterloo’, in participating cinemas from 16 May 2019.

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 which also played a significant role in the founding of The Guardian newspaper.

Written and directed by Academy Award nominated filmmaker Mike Leigh (Happy-Go-Lucky, Secrets & Lies, Mr. Turner), PETERLOO stars Tim McInnerny, Maxine Peake, Robert Wilfort, and Rory Kinnear as British orator, pioneer and politician Henry Hunt.

Enter via the form below by Monday 13 May 2019 for your chance to win.  *Please note that tickets need to be collected from Radio Adelaide offices, Adelaide.
