The character, forms and patterns of entertainments and leisure pursuits have been an important part of historical culture. They have ‘played’ a prominent role in shaping and defining individual, group and broader social identities. This conference will examine the importance of these aspects of popular culture in local, national and indeed international spaces. Papers submitted by April 21, 2006 on the North West of England will be particularly welcome but we also invite papers from researchers who can offer a broader regional or international perspective.
