We are delighted to welcome to Chetham’s Dr Jacqueline Riding, consultant historian on Mike Leigh’s Mr Turner (2014) and Peterloo (2018). Jacqueline specialises in British History and the art of the long eighteenth century, and is author of Peterloo: The Story of the Manchester Massacre (2018). In this lecture she will talk about her research methods and explore the process of transferring the history of Peterloo from page to screen and back again.

The evening will also include the opportunity to examine the large collection of primary source material relating to Peterloo held here at Chetham’s Library, including items consulted by Dr Riding and her research team.
