We’re still in pantomime season at the moment, so let me remind you that Whitley Bay Pantomime Society are celebrating their 50th Anniversary by performing Aladdin at the Playhouse in Whitley Bay.
The show runs from Tuesday 14th to Sunday 19th January, and you’ll find details of performance times and ticket prices in our community events here. I should point out that there was an error in last month’s entry and advert, and there is no evening performance on the Sunday. This promises to be an excellent pantomime by local performers so why not book some tickets while they are still available?
The New Year is often a time when we decide to improve our health, and with that in mind I’m delighted to welcome back local writer Katherine Wildman who has recently taken up yoga and is waxing lyrical about the benefits – see her article here. For those who prefer the great outdoors, our walking expert, Geoff Holland, offers an alternative approach to fitness here, with his description of a bracing walk to Carey Burn Linn.
I’m also grateful to Charlie Steel for this month’s history articles about Monkseaton Garage – see here – and Tynemouth Amateur Swimming Club – see here – and to Terry Took for the latest excerpt from his adventures Down Under, which is the first part of the story of his trip to the Australian National Park of Kakadu – see here.
We always like to hear from our readers, so if you have any comments then do please get in touch – call us on 0191 253 7608 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
