Newcastle Noir - FRINGE - Murderous Newcastle Talk £3

Murderous Newcastle Fact and Fiction, with Pat Lowery

Newcastle is rich in history and has endured many turbulent times. Some people died an unexpected and violent death resulting in the murderers being hanged at Gallows Hole or outside the West Gate. Others escaped their fate as the murderers evaded the clutches of the law. This talk looks at some of the terrible murders in Newcastle, both real and as imagined by local authors.
