Filming in Lincoln for new Mike Leigh film Peterloo
Parts of Lincoln have been transformed to represent Manchester in 1819 for Mike Leigh's new film about the Peterloo Massacre.
Peterloo tells the story of a mass rally by pro-democracy campaigners who gathered on St Peter's Fields to demand the right to elect their own MPs.
Hundreds were injured and 15 killed when armed cavalry tried to arrest a speaker at the event.
Filming for the feature is taking place close to Lincoln Castle.
As part of the preparations, signs were replaced and stalls set up.
An exhibition of the Lincoln Knights was also moved.
Lincoln Knights tweeted: "Due to a film production taking place in Lincoln: 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 17 & 18 have moved to Minster Yard."
Ahead of the filming, the production company advertised locally for extras to take part.
Little is known about the cast, but it is rumoured Maxine Peake, who starred in Three Girls - the story of Rochdale's grooming scandal, will have a lead role.
Filming is expected to continue through to late summer.
