Showpeople Exhibition Wrapped

Its a wrap for Showpeople of North Staffordshire Exhibition – Ready for next time

Its a wrap!
The Showpeople of North Staffordshire exhibition is out and packed away ready for next time.
Deb from Appetite and our own Andrew Van Buren have been busy taking down, bubble wrapping and storing. It has been amazing – thank you all for your support and for visiting us too.
News! Part of the exhibition will be on show soon at the New Vic Theatre during the return run of Astley’s Astounding Adventures. Which was the New Vic Theatre hit of 2018 telling the story of Philip Astley’s life.
There is some more BIG news on the horizon too!
Pictured Andrew Van Buren plus the exhibition photographs being wrapped ready to go to the Van Buren HQ and New Vic Theatre.
