Rising Up: Peterloo 2019

Colston Hall Presents at Bristol Folk House

In 1819, the concept of freedom of speech, protest and democracy were tested when armed soldiers charged at peaceful protestors. Two centuries on, these principles are still under threat. This new commission tells the personal stories of two women linked across time and through experience as they struggle to rise up and find their voice.

Rising Up boldly combines dramatic narrative and song, with text written by Debs Newbold (King Lear Retold, Through The Seasons) and songs by Sean Cooney (The Young’uns). The songs and music will be performed by Sam Carter (False Lights), Lucy Farrell (Furrow Collective) and Jim Molyneux (4Square).

Age 14+ (under 18s to be accompanied).

This is a unallocated seated Colston Hall Presents show at The Folk House, 40a Park St, Bristol BS1 5JG
