Discover the amazing story of John Wroe, the 19th century prophet who tried to transform Ashton into the New Jerusalem! Professional actors will perform Wroe’s story from his rise to power, the scandals that brought him down, journeys to the USA and Australia, and his final rivalry with sometime friend Daniel Milton. Archives from the John Wroe collection will also be on display, with a historian from Manchester Metropolitan University on hand to talk visitors through the documents.
