The Newcastle Eccentrics: Tales of Georgian Newcastle

The Newcastle Eccentrics: Tales of Georgian Newcastle

Frank Bray transports you to 19th century Newcastle for this fascinating talk about his novel, ‘The Newcastle Eccentrics’. Inspired by Dickens, he brings to life real historical characters, especially those who feature in Henry Perlee Parker’s painting, The Newcastle Eccentrics. Many of the places featured in the book - the Quayside, the Town Moor, the Keelmen’s Hospital, the Guildhall and High Bridge - are still around, although they all look very different today.
