WoWFest 19 | Peterloo and Q & A with Mike Leigh

Plaza Cinema in partnership with WOW Fest 19, the Plaza is pleased to announce that in partnership with Writing on the Wall Film Festival, we are showing for one night only Peterloo (12A) on Monday 13th May at 6:30pm followed by a Q & A with the Director Mike Leigh.


The 1819 massacre in St Peter’s fields, brought graphically to life in Mike Leigh’s latest epic film Peterloo, sent shockwaves throughout society. Legendary director Mike Leigh, who’s credits include Abigail’s Party, Secrets & Lies, Vera Drake and Mr Turner, joins WoW for a unique screening followed by Q&A.

Mike Leigh’s gripping account of the 1819 St Peter’s Field massacre is a devastating portrait of class and political corruption which develops our understanding of how the working poor in Britain have coped with oppression. It is a necessary film for our times and is delivered in a brilliant, authentic way in which only Mike Leigh can manage.

The Plaza is working in partnership with the Foodbank, if you could donate rice pudding, squash or ladies feminine products if you’re coming along to the screening that would be great!

You can see Peterloo on Monday 13th May 2019, ticket prices are £10 and are available from the Plaza Box Office from Monday 25th March @ 6pm, box office opening times 6pm weekday and all day on weekends

    Hi there!

    Just a quick enquiry, will Mike Leigh actually be attending the plaza cinema or will it be a live stream to somewhere else.

    Can I reserve two tickets for the Peterloo screening on 13th May (live in Southport so can’t get to the cinema for a few days). If you can accept on-line ticket purchases I am happy to do so.
