As well as her fairly regular early evening public talks at the Lit & Phil library, Gail-Nina Anderson has recently begun offering illustrated lectures at Newcastle Castle, mostly on folklore and art-related themes. "In case you haven't yet ventured to this venue," says Gail-Nina, "we're actually talking about the recently restored Black Gate or castle gate-house, which has a lift and refreshment facilities and provides an intimate, surprisingly informal (given that this was once a castle) space for talks - rather like a village hall embedded in impressive ancient stone walls!"
Booking for these talks has been lively, so they may already be sold out. If so, please register your interest with the Castle for the possibility of a repeat performance. Full details on the 'Talks and Lectures' page.
Gail-Nina's triads of art lectures at the Lit & Phil continue into the summer: as with her previous sets of three talks examining different aspects of a movement or theme in art, each one will stand alone as an independent lecture, so don't worry if you can only attend one or two.
Lectures resume in June, with a triad on paintings that can be seen locally: full details to follow, but a schedule is already available on the 'Talks and Lectures' page.
We also have a date for Midsummer Phantoms - Thursday 22nd June 2017; and a name - the guest apparition will be Tony Williams. Want to know more? Read the full spooky story here!
