There will be a public lecture ‘Thomas Bewick Walks: the Pedestrian Engraver’ by Peter Quinn, Chair of The Bewick Society, on the evening of Thursday 13th November.

Please encourage a friend or two to come along to ensure a good audience on the evening. This event will take place in the Lamesley Room of the Gateshead Civic Centre, starting at 6.30pm (lecture begins at 7pm prompt), there will be time to view the ‘Bewick & Back: Wildlife, Walking & Art’ exhibition and in the lecture room there will be an exhibition on the walks i.e. photographs, poems and prose arising out of the Bewick Walks.

The ‘Bewick & Back: Wildlife, Walking & Art’ exhibition is located in the public art space of the Gateshead Civic Centre and features an assemblage of new facsimiles taken from Bewick's wonderful wood engravings. Car parking is available at the Civic Centre (charges apply), which can be found using the postcode NE8 1HH.
