Abstract or description

Dr Carmel Thomason from Staffordshire University worked with Brampton Museum and a group of volunteers to research the life of Philip Astley and his family in Newcastle-under-Lyme and the role of Astley’s theatrical performances in shaping recreational life of the period. The research was been compiled by Dr Carmel Thomason at Staffordshire University into a Resource Pack for a general audience. A printed edition of the pack was distributed at an event on 28 Nov 2018. The pack is available online as a series of downloadable pdfs via the Philip Astley Project website. http://www.philipastley.org.uk/resources/
