Peterloo giveaway (in cinemas May 16th)

Mike Leigh's latest film is 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.

To celebrate the release of Mike Leigh’s latest film Peterloo, the champions at Transmission have given us 10 double-passes to giveaway. For your chance to win, simply CLICK HERE to head over to our Facebook page and follow the entry instructions.
