Peterloo Witness : I am Sam Bamford!

  • Baronial Hall
  • £11

This wonderful performance by Neil Bell and Jennifer Reid will take you back to the time of Peterloo and the struggle for votes and bread, through the life and works of English radical reformer and poet, Samuel Bamford, who narrowly escaped the noose for treason.

Neil Bell (Sam Bamford, in Mike Leigh’s Peterloo feature film) will be reading passages from Bamford’s two acclaimed works Early Days and Passages in the Life of a Radical and selections from his poetry. These readings will be interspersed with contemporary popular songs performed by Jennifer Reid, Lancashire’s Broadside Balladress, and there’ll be an opportunity to discuss Bamford’s later life.
