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. An illustrated talk by Pat Lowery, Newcastle City Guide.
Pat will also be leading Murderous Newcastle walking tours during the Festival. Full details coming soon!
