Description

Meet in the Bewick Room at Newcastle City Library, New Bridge Street.

Finish at the Majestic/Carling Academy, Westgate Road.


Did you dance the foxtrot at The Oxford Galleries or danced around your handbag at the Mayfair? Did you see The Beatles play at The Majestic or did you see The Animals perform a gig at the Club A’Gogo? Join us on a special one-off guided tour of some of the entertainment venues of Newcastle led by Newcastle City Guides.


Booking essential. Tour lasts approx 1.5hrs

This guided walk is part of our Meet me at the Oxford celebration event taking place at Newcastle City Library on Thursday 4 July 2019 2-4pm. Over the last twelve months we have collected stories from over fifty people about their memories and anecdotes of The Oxford Galleries in Newcastle. The stories collected during our project have been brought together to create the "Meet me at the Oxford" story book which will feature stories, memories and photographs from those that stepped through it's doors.

This guided walk is free of charge thanks to a grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
