Tuesday 30 November 2021 at 7 p.m via Zoom – A House Through Time – Our own local version of the David Olusoga TV series. It’s about Fawdon House which today is the Northumbrian Piper public house on Red House Farm but has had more than a dozen fascinating tenants over almost two centuries – from Newcastle’s first postmaster and several war heroes to an international footballer and a renowned industrialist. This illustrated talk tells the story of the building and of many of its occupants. INTERESTED? Message or email us to receive the Zoom link.
