For the third year Tyne Valley Community Rail Partnership (TVCRP) has collaborated with the Wylam Winter Tales Festival.
The idea of the Festival is to celebrate the Arts with the local community in Wylam and the Tyne Valley, bringing light at the darkest time of the year through story telling, music, poetry, spoken word, film, crafts and history. This year, Wylam Winter Tales’ exhibition was entitled “Wylam Way: Collective Memory”.
The Tyne Valley Community Rail Partnership (TVCRP) is exploring the possibility of staging Commemoration Event(s) to remember the 1939/1940 World war Two evacuations of women and children from the Tyneside industrial conurbation to the relative safety of rural Tynedale. TVCRP has teamed up with Wallsend Local History Society to identify interest particularly those who were involved both from Tyneside and the receiving towns of Haltwhistle, Brampton and the surrounding villages.
