This week I’ll be talking to Dr Andrew Crome about an upcoming event entitled Apocalyptic Ashton: John Wroe, Tameside’s Prophet.
Apocalyptic Ashton on Saturday 17th November is a chance to discover the story of John Wroe, the nineteenth-century prophet who tried to transform Ashton into the New Jerusalem. Performed by professional actors and with an opportunity to view Tameside Local Archives‘ collection of documents relating to Wroe and the Christian Israelite Church in Ashton, Apocalyptic Ashton will reveal this fascinating part of Ashton’s past.
In addition to this, I’ll also be taking my usual look through Yesterday’s Papers. And you can pit your wits against the Who Am I? quiz – just how well do you know North Manchester’s landmark buildings?
