Experience this “spectacular” (Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian) and “powerful” (Andy Lea, Daily Express) film, as Peterloo arrives on Digital Download 25 February and on Blu-rayTM and DVD 11 March.
Peterloo portrays the epic events surrounding the infamous 1819 Peterloo Massacre in Manchester, when armed government forces charged into a crowd of 60,000 peaceful protesters who were desperate for greater democracy and improved working conditions.
