Two of Manchester's most iconic eras are about to collide in Manchester Sound: The Massacre – and you're on the guest list.

This unique production brings the changing face of protest in our radical city vividly to life – from the Peterloo Massacre of 1819 to the late 80s acid house scene, through to today.
