The Brave, the Bold and the Bad: north east men from the past

‘Life is a lottery comprised of interesting characters, some lucky some not so lucky. The north east has had its fair share of saints and sinners, hewn from hardship and life’s experiences. Some turn out bold, some brave and others bad.’ Freda Thompson will return to Heaton History Group in June to introduce us to some of our more colourful antecedents. Intrigued? You’ll need to come along to Freda’s talk to find out more.


A Heaton back lane (Back Molyneux Street), c1913


The talk will take place on 28 June 2017 at The Corner House, Heaton Road NE6 5RP at 7.30pm (Doors open at 7.00pm. You are advised to take your seat by 7.15pm). Please book your place by contacting / 07443 594154. Until 23 March, booking will be open to Heaton History Group members only.



  1. I know! It’s the back of Beavan’s. I think the men were from the city council who were in dispute with the post office about telegraph poles blocking the pavement! Not sure whether that makes them bold, brave or bad!
