There will also be a sneak preview of some of the music in the Choir’s forthcoming September concert including ‘Come to the Fair’ and ‘Rhythm of Life’. The concert will end with a selection from the much-acclaimed musical ‘Les Miserables’.

The Choir will be under the leadership of Musical Director, Julie Parker, who said: “This event gives us the opportunity to combine some of our favourite repertoire with pieces which are new to us and will be included in our Autumn concert music. The styles are wonderfully contrasting so we feel there will be something for everyone to enjoy during the performance.”

As this is a free concert and tickets are not being issued, people are asked to arrive early to avoid disappointment.

15/08/19 (Thursday) - Ballads and songs of Peterloo with Dr Alison Morgan

Altrincham Library, Thursday 15 August at 7.30pm.

Ballads and Songs of Peterloo by Dr Alison Morgan is based on her unique collection of more than seventy poems and ballads which highlight the outrage, grief, defiance and resolution felt by labouring-class people in the immediate aftermath of the Peterloo Massacre in which eighteen people were killed and more than 600 injured as they listened to the radical Henry Hunt speak on the need for electoral reform.

Alison’s talk focuses on a selection of these poems and songs which were circulated in radical journals and performed at markets and in taverns, highlighting how they aimed to keep a true record of the day in the public consciousness and counter the official government narrative. The talk will be illustrated by audio recordings from musicians who have worked with Alison to bring these important and entertaining songs to life once more.

A free event. Book your tickets on Eventbrite.
