This summer the Heritage gallery will be transformed as Old Low Light aim to tell the Fisherman’s story, a story which has been co-curated by the fishermen themselves. This exhibition will make you stop and think. It will tell the real stories behind one of North Shields greatest Industries.

Have you thought about the dangers of fishing? Do you know about the three-day millionaires?
Find information on this and more, as we invite you to come on board this summer.

Peer into the lives of the men who risk their lives to make a living. There will also be the opportunity to talk to some of our fishermen who will be in the gallery on various dates throughout the exhibition. Also, enjoy viewing some of the fantastic photography on display by Julie Nicholson.
