The Showpeople of North Staffordshire Exhibition is open!
Appetite has supported the Philip Astley Project to deliver ‘Show People of North Staffordshire‘ and are excited to host the exhibition within their Newcastle under Lyme, Staffordshire Newcastle Common High Street space.
‘Show People of North Staffordshire’ is a project that has recorded stories of fairground and circus Showmen, families and workers in the area over the past few months. Members of the community were asked for their memories too and a photographer captured portraits of the families and workers, alongside current circus and fairgrounds in the area.
The Show People exhibition shares some of the stories and photographs that have been captured as part of the project. It includes a number of oral history interviews that can be listened to, a map showing current and past circus and fairground sites, related photographs and objects.
Show People Exhibition is open Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from Friday 30 June to Saturday 26 August from 11am to 3pm and is FREE to attend.
