Description

Dr Jacqueline Riding is the author of Peterloo: The Story of the Manchester Massacre. She specialises in eighteenth-century history and art. Former curator of the Palace of Westminster and Director of the Handel House Museum, she is now an author and film historical adviser, including Jacobites: A New History of the '45 Rebellion (Bloomsbury 2016) and Mike Leigh's Mr. Turner and Peterloo. To commemorate the anniversary of Peterloo, Jacqueline will be in conversation with Amy Concannon - Curator at Tate Britain responsible for art of the period 1790–1850. Amy is an expert on JMW Turner and John Constable and is co-curator of the forthcoming exhibition on William Blake. Born in Oldham, where her fascination for the nineteenth century began, she has worked at the Wordsworth Trust, Cumbria, and Dulwich Picture Gallery, London.

This special event will be followed by a free screening of Mike Leigh’s film Peterloo which Dr Jacqueline Riding was involved with as historical adviser:
