Lecture Programme


Lectures at the Lit & Phil

These talks are organised by the Lit & Phil (you don't need to be a member in order to attend any of their public events), and tickets cost £4 per talk, from the Lit & Phil Library, 23 Westgate Road, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 1SE, in person or over the phone (0191) 232 0192. It is advisable to book seats in advance; if you reserve a ticket and are subsequently unable to attend, please let us know as we often have a waiting list.

Art talks run from 6.00 - 7.00 pm and are in the ground floor rooms (so no stairs).

Gail-Nina interrupts her current series of triads of art lectures for a summer solo talk.

Paul Nash (1889-1946)

On Wednesday 27th September at 6.00 pm, Gail-Nina offers a special talk, timed to coincide with the exhibition of Nash's painting at the Laing Art Gallery.

September | Wed 27th | 18:00

Innovative within a tradition, the inter-war landscapes of Paul Nash (1889-1946) define a very British mode of Romantic Modernism, while the works he produced in response to two world wars have given us humane and oddly lyrical images of terrifying devastation.

Talks at Newcastle Castle

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. Booking for these is always lively, but if your chosen event is already sold out, please use the online booing service to register your interest, for the possibility of a repeat performance.

Talks take place in the Black Gate, which is fully accessible to wheelchair users.
