Come and Listen in North Tyneside!

I really love to produce podcasts (audio recordings) of the wonderful culture we have here in the North East.  Whether the content comes from individual writers or from projects, it’s a privilege to record their stories and verse and put them out online for everyone to hear.

However, it’s also great to take those recordings out into the community to reach a new audience.  I now have a mobile listening post which will be travelling across venues in North Tyneside over Summer 2016.  The listening post will feature a selection of recordings from the Culture Bites @ North Tyneside Podcast Project which you will be able to hear through headphones.  It has an easy to use i-pad touchscreen which has been been beautifully designed by Iris Digital.

You will be able to hear work from Elementary Writers inspired by St Mary’s Island and Whitley Bay, stories on the theme of Centurions and Frontiers inspired by Segedunum, a extract from the radio play Figureheads recorded at The TVLB watch house and museum and real life memories from The Lighthouse Ladies who meet at Old Low Light Heritage Centre.

Hope you can go along and enjoy a listen in these wonderful surroundings:

Segedunum Museum and Fort Cafe from July 18 to August 7

St Mary’s Island Visitor Centre from August 8 to 23

Old Low Light Heritage Centre from August 24 to September 5
