Guest speaker David Hirst of Tynemouth Fine Art presents an illustrated talk that takes you on a whistle-stop trip along the river from Source (well, nearly) to Sea as seen through the eyes of northern artists.  The spotlight is on the social history of the Tyne and the people who lived and worked along its banks, all illustrated by paintings created by some of Tyneside’s finest artists past and present.  With its tales of floods, feuds and festivals David’s talk is an entertainingly different voyage of discovery along the river.
