Great news that North Tyneside Council has been awarded a grant of nearly £73,000 from Historic England as part of the North Shields High Streets Heritage Action Zone (HSHAZ) to create and deliver community-led cultural activities on the high street over the next three years.
The Cultural Programme in North Shields will bring together residents, local community groups and established artists to celebrate the uniqueness of the town. Local people will help co-create and deliver a programme of high-quality workshops, oral history projects and public performances. The programme will culminate in a community-produced play celebrating the history of the North Shields HSHAZ and its importance to commercial and civic life.
This is another important step on the road to the regeneration of North Shields and the Fish Quay.
