Talks on Tyne: Historical writing discussions

Writers and historians who have worked with Tyne Bridge Publishing—Newcastle Libraries’ publishing arm—will present a series of weekly talks at the Black Gate: the gatehouse to Newcastle’s medieval Castle (27 July–31 August).

Speakers include TV favourite John Grundy and Max Adams (The King in the North) and will cover topics as diverse as medieval Newcastle, the Roman Tyne Bridge, and Tyneside’s role in the Battle of the Somme.

All talks, running approximately one hour, will commence at 6pm and cost £4 plus booking fee. For more information and to book tickets, see
