There were other places, of which Whitworth Park, Alexandra Park along with Albert Square were the ones I seem to remember.
Go back almost a century and Stevenson Square played host to a large number of rallies and demonstrations while in the decades before Peterloo many impromptu gatherings occurred at New Cross.
All of which just leaves the sight of Peterloo, which everyone will be familiar with.

In the early 1970s the favoured venue was Oxford Road, although I can remember assembling by Strangeways prison once.
More recently and for reasons I don’t fully understand we were told to meet up near the Cathedral to process to Piccadilly Gardens.
