Rights of the Child – Quarry Bank Mill National Trust

Date: Event running daily from Friday 16 August to Sunday 29 September 2019.

Description: In this new exhibition, explore the experiences of the hundreds of children who worked at Quarry Bank and discover how children's rights have changed over time. 2019 marks 200 years since the Peterloo Massacre, a key moment in British history when working people marched to demand their right to a voice and were cut down. Featuring new protest banners created by Ed Hall with help from local schools and communities, we're exploring what the Peterloo Massacre meant to the people who were there at the time, and its significance today.

This exhibition is part of the Manchester Histories Peterloo 2019 commemoration project -  

Assistance dogs are welcome. Fully accessible exhibition space

Time: 10.30am to 5.00pm.
