In August 1819 over 60,000 pro-democracy (just 2% of the population could vote) and anti-poverty protesters from Manchester & surrounding areas gathered peacefully. Cavalry charged into the crowd and an estimated 18 people, including four women and a child, died from sabre cuts and trampling. Nearly 700 men, women and children received extremely serious injuries. All for demanding political reform and freedom from poverty.
Everything is handmade to order therefore please allow up to 7 business days for completion of your very own piece.
We also do custom pieces to order, so if you are wanting something else, made with a different theme in mind just get in touch and we can make a piece up to your specifications :-) email; [email protected]
A LITLE NOTE ABOUT SHIPPING - PLEASE READ (FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE!)
We send parcels to countries outside the UK by Airmail post. We send our parcels within the UK by 1st Class post. Please note that this is not a tracked service.
If you do require tracking, this is an extra GBP £6.00 UK (£6.50 overseas) which you can select at checkout. We do obtain a Proof of Posting Certificate for every item posted.
Please remember that deliveries outside the UK are in most cases received in about a week but occasionally they do take longer. Sometimes they get 'stuck' in your country's Customs but thankfully this does not happen often. If it does though, please be a little patient and be prepared to give it a few weeks.
