My PhD Thesis concerns the Northern Fun Pubs (NFPs), and the camp entertainment that they created/generated, and the way in which straight people accessed this camp entertainment. The NFPs were entertainment venues which appeared in the North of England from 1973 to 1993, and with a few satalite NFPs in areas outside the North of England. Interestingly, these NFPs only appeared in the first instance due to serendipity - a happy accident...

...which my thesis unpacks.

My methodology was three fold: Oral History, Autoethnography and Practice Research. And here are two videos used as adjuncts in my PhD.

2. Original footage from the Northern Fun Pubs: 1984 to 1991.

Here is various original footage from the Northern Fun Pubs (NFPs); I was lucky enough to own some of the footage from Henry Africa's (1991): and I managed to source other videos from old NFP entertainers - such as Clowns Show Bar Wigan (1984); and The Entertainer, Chorley (1986).
