Dan Jackson author talk in Hexham Abbey In light of the recent announcement regarding Lockdown, we are rescheduling Dan's event to April when we hope that those of you who are still holding tickets will be able to join us for this much anticipated event. We will keep you informed about the new date but if, in these uncertain times, you'd prefer a refund please get in touch at [email protected] and we will sort it out for you. Dan will be discussing The Northumbrians, his new history of North East England. Whitley-Bay born, he explores the roots of Northumbrian culture – hard work, heavy drinking, sociability, sentimentality, militarism and masculinity— in centuries of border warfare and demanding work in industry, at sea and underground. The Northumbrians have often been overlooked in British and global history, but have made astonishing contributions to both. From the Venerable Bede and the prince bishops of Durham to Admiral Collingwood, Viz and Geordie Shore, Jackson reveals a part of England whose future may be uncertain, but whose people remain as durable and remarkable as ever. The event will adhere to the Covid restrictions and guidelines in place at that time. Tickets available when date confirmed.
