Organised by the Northumberland Volunteer Fundraising Committee

Newcastle Arts Centre, 55/57 Westgate Road

Guided Tour | 55/57 Westgate Road

Tuesday 15 September 2015 - 13:30

Join the group for 2 exclusive guided tours/talks by Mike Tilley, Director of Newcastle Arts Centre. The first will be at 55/57 Westgate Road, a building with an amazing history stretching back to Tudor times, in the process of being recovered from dereliction. Along with other properties on Westgate Road it was accidentally preserved through the property crash of 1974 and consequent cancellation of massive redevelopment plans.

After tea the group will visit the adjacent Black Swan Court to see the buildings that have now been converted into studios and workshops for artists and craft workers.

This event has been organised by the Northumberland Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
