Lines on the Wall – poetry and performance at Friends’ Meeting House, Mount Street, Manchester. Thursday 4th July ... the walls that divide us, and the walls that we want to remember. Philip Gross, Tania Hershman and several Open Mic readers shared poems on the theme of walls, division, or borders, to mark the 200th anniversary of the Peterloo Massacre. The wall that still stands on the Bootle Street side of Friends’ Meeting House is where peaceful pro-democracy protesters were wounded and killed.
