About the Event
Remember the days when Monday was always a wash day, tin baths in front of the fire and knitted bathing suits on the beach – join local author and historian Andrew Clark for this fascinating talk about the good old days!
‘North East Life in the 1930s, 40s & 50s’ recalls life at home when the washing was done in a poss tub; the wireless was the main form of entertainment; every community had a cinema and a holiday would be a trip to the seaside.
Andrew also shares memories of Christmas, childhood games and early television.
An illustrated talk with the chance to take a closer look at some of the heritage objects that Andrew brings with him.
There will also be the opportunity to purchase some of Andrew’s books about the North East at the end of the talk.
