Peterloo 1819 shirt

Peterloo 1819 shirt

On 16th August 1819 a peaceful march of 60,000 people assembled in St Peter's Fields, Manchester. In response to their demands for greater democracy, the government instructed the army to disperse the crowd, which was charged by sabre-wielding mounted dragoons, leading to an estimated 18 deaths and 700 serious injuries. 

The incident was ironically named 'Peterloo' in reference to the Battle of Waterloo fought four years earlier. Our T-shirt, launched this week to coincide with the release of Mike Leigh's film Peterloo, is a design of resistance.

Unisex sizes small (36inch chest/90cms), medium (40 inch/100cms), large (44 inch/110cms), XL (48 inch/120cms) and XXL (52inch/130cms). Available as listed in drop down menu below.
