The Philip Astley Project is a collaboration between arts, heritage, statutory and education organisations working in and around Newcastle-under-Lyme. If you would like to get involved in the project, watch this space for specific opportunities and follow us on social media.

Spread the word

We want everyone in Newcastle-under-Lyme to know all about Philip Astley and be proud of his contribution to our cultural life. But we can’t do it alone! Spread the word by sharing our posts on social media and bringing your friends and families to upcoming events.
