Heaton: from farms to foundries

Local historian, Alan Morgan, will give our next talk on Wednesday 22 May, again at the Corner House, Heaton. Alan was born and bred in Newcastle and still lives in High Heaton.

He is author of Heaton: from farms to foundries, available on Amazon and from Newcastle City Council, and many other local history books on Newcastle. He is also an experienced City Guide. Alan will give a fascinating insight into the history of Heaton, which grew in little over a century from a tiny settlement into  the bustling suburb we know now. He will illustrate his talk with photographs and illustrations, many not featured in his book.

Tickets are priced £2 or free to members. To book a place (essential as they are selling fast), email or telephone 0191 240 3525.

To enquire about membership, priced £10 for the year, contact or ask on the night.

Make sure that you arrive at the Corner House by 7.00pm and take your seat by 7.15pm, as it’s likely we’ll have to reallocate  unclaimed seats to a standby list. Our first event, the talk by John Grundy, was a great social occasion as well as an informative and entertaining talk and the second looks like being the same. Hope to see you there!
