As a well-known TV presenter and author John has written and presented various architectural programmes for both radio and television such as “Townscape”, “Grundy’s Wonders”, “Grundy’s Northern Pride”, and many others.

Born in Cumberland and still living in the region he is passionate about the North of England and in particular the history and heritage preserved here.

Tony Stephenson from the Tyne & Wear Heritage Forum explains how delighted the Forum are to have John speaking at the conference: “John has introduced thousands of people to the unique and often breath-taking architecture of the North and has become one of the most popular presenters on local television and is also an accomplished public speaker with an endearing, self-deprecating, sense of humour. We’re delighted and honoured he will be speaking at our conference and look forward to hearing from him, along with the previously confirmed Adam Hart-Davis, this is a fantastic line-up”

The Tyne & Wear Heritage Conference is organised by the Tyne & Wear Heritage Forum, an alliance of key heritage bodies and individuals in the North East with the aim of engaging local communities in the preservation of their local heritage.
