THE BAIRN

Fri 21st June 2019
Cullercoats Crescent Club, Cullercoats, NE30 4PN
Elaine Whitesides is a Cullercoats born author now living in Nottingham. Her vividly written account of growing up in Cullercoats, published by IRON Press, is both a description of a unique community and a microcosm of postwar 1950s Britain, an era within many people’s memories, but also seeming strangely distant. The book has been reprinted specially for the festival. Elaine will also run a workshop on memoir writing (see Sunday evening). We are delighted to welcome back our very own sea shanty quartet, The Keelers, locally based but with an international reputation for fantastic harmonies.

Don’t Forget 10 till Midnight, the Festival Club at the Salt House.
