Peterloo Legacy Project

Cap and Dove

Cap and Dove is a travelling mini arts-centre housing; a museum, a tiny theatre and a shop. Its interior is decorated with commissions by artists inspired by the heritage of Greater Manchester. 

It was created by artist Joshua Sofaer and is a Peterloo legacy project celebrating protest, liberty, and equality, the same themes that united Greater Manchester at Peterloo over 200 years ago.

In August and September Cap and Dove will travel to ten locations where it will deliver a programme of activity. 

Further information on Cap and Dove can be found here
