Guided Heritage Walks on the Quayside

David Silk Historian



FREE TO ATTEND! In support of Moving Parts Arts and the Newcastle Puppet Festival 2024, local historian and storyteller Dave Silk will be leading guided walks of the Quayside on both sides of the big river. Including tales of the Great Fire, ghastly ghosts, Italian merchants, the Japanese Navy and one dead Bishop, discover the weird and wonderful heritage of Newcastle and Gateshead's quayside. And don't forget the Kittiwakes...
These guided walks have been made possible thanks to funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund as part of our City of Kittiwakes project.

Dave Silk is a storyteller and historian from Newcastle upon Tyne and co-author of Tyne and Wear Folktales for Children. He collects and retells traditional tales and ancient stories from around these isles and further afield, and also enjoys rearing pet leeches and practicing the Dark Arts.
