Fascinating folk

January 2023

In 2023 we celebrate 850 years of the Borough of Newcastle.

Fascinating Folk takes a look at some of the local people who have made their mark in that time.

We tell the stories and recognise the achievements of these remarkable people.

Each month we take a look at different theme and focus on one or two ‘fascinating folk’ within that theme.
