The next meeting of the Association will take place on Wednesday 15th March 2023 at 12.30 for 1.00 on the second floor of the west stand at Newcastle Falcons Rugby Club, Kingston Park Brunton Road, Newcastle upon Tyne NE13 8AF - which is the same area where we met in June and October 2022. The cost of the lunch is £14.50 or £29.00 for two.
Our guest and speaker will be Dr Shane McCorristine a friend of, and recommended by, the speaker at our last meeting Dr Helen Rutherford. He is a Reader in Cultural History and Lecturer in Modern British History at Newcastle University and the subject of his talk will be the “History of Newcastle Gaol 1828-1925”.
Shane describes himself as an inter-disciplinary historian with interests in the “night side” of modern experience namely social attitudes towards death, crimes, dreams and ghosts.
As always you are most welcome to bring a guest – lets make this a bumper attendance!
See you on the Ides of March.
Bryan, Richard and John.
