Event description

Description

The west end of Newcastle was once home to many of Tyneside’s richest and most powerful families, living in grand mansions with landscaped grounds away from the noise, dirt and disease of the city. During the latter half of the 19th century there was a rapid development of industry along the riverside and thousands of homes were built across the area to serve the growing industries. Join us to watch a series of new short films about some of the people who lived in the west end – including pitmen and Vickers Armstrong workers as well as the rich and famous such as Richard Grainger.
