We kick off this year’s festival in the glamorous setting of the newly refurbished Spanish City Pleasure Buildings.

The evening will continue with an illustrated talk by local graphic designer Mick Sharp, whose forthcoming book The Dome of Memories traces the history of The Spanish City Dome and fairground. The event will be completed with rare archive film of Whitley Bay from the North East Film Archive. We’ll also be screening a short film made for Heritage Open Days in 2010 to celebrate the centenary of the Dome featuring interviews with visitors to Whitley Bay from as far back as the 1930s.
