Summer may be coming to a close, but the fun is continuing in North Tyneside as the borough’s libraries and community centres host a huge programme of events. 

Libraries and community centres in North Tyneside are preparing for a busy couple of months as a jam-packed autumn and winter events guide approaches.

The guide features a wide variety of events, from local history and Halloween Fun and Games, to various ‘meet the author’ events.

One of the early highlights in the programme is a special evening with the author of a brand new book based around Sting.

Launching a new book about Wallsend’s favourite son, Professor Paul Carr will be at Wallsend Customer First Centre on Tuesday 28 September to talk about what makes Sting tick musically and provide detail about his sound and the musician he has become.

The book looks at Sting’s distinct Geordie identity, and of course mentions his upbringing in Wallsend.

Also at Wallsend Customer First Centre will be the ‘Femme Fatale’ event on Thursday 5 October.

Join best-selling crime authors Danielle Ramsay, K A Richardson, Sheila Quigley and Eileen Wharton, as they discuss writing, crime and themselves.

They will be interviewed by Dr Jacky Collins, lecturer in European Fiction, Film & TV at Northumbria University, and creator and director of Newcastle Noir – International Crime Fiction Festival.

For full event details, programmes can be picked up free from libraries and community centres in North Tyneside. It is also available online by visiting www.northtyneside.gov.uk.
