Brains, Steam and Speed

 

An exhibition of work from five of our primary schools, inspired by the Great Exhibition of the North, is showing now in the gallery of the Peoples Theatre in Heaton. Pupils have thoroughly enjoyed learning about local notable individuals and their contributions to our modern lives, and have produced some fabulous work. This week you can see the exhibition alongside the show Heaton!, which celebrates the lives and achievements of pioneering individuals such as Charles Parsons, Ove Arup and Colin Veitch - all linked to our corner of Newcastle!
