Event Summary

On Thursday 5th December 2019, George Street Community Bookshop are hosting an evening with the authors of the
best selling verbatim graphic novel 'Peterloo: Witnesses to a Massacre' at Victoria Hall, Glossop.

The Glossop event, which doubles as a fundraiser for the community bookshop, is their last event of a hectic 2019 and
they intend to go out with a bang.

“We'll be auctioning original artwork from the book, hosting a pop-up bar and giving rare Peterloo raffle prizes to raise
funds for the George Street Community Bookshop.” says author Paul Fitzgerald.

“But people travelled from around Greater Manchester and beyond to take part in Peterloo, so we're eager to hear
stories of past Glossopdale demonstrations, activism and campaigns, anything from saving a local duck pond to
campaigns for the vote.” adds co-author Eva Schlunke.

The event is hosted by Glossopdale Community Bookshop and runs from 7.30pm to 10pm on Thursday 5th December
2019 at Victoria Hall on Talbot Street. Entry is £2 in advance and £3 on the evening. A paid bar will be in operation.
