Rats! I hate cancelling gigs but I’ve had to slice a performance scheduled for Friday morning out of my diary. These things ‘appen.

I was meant to be joining other contributors to North Tyneside Steam, a book about George Stephenson and his locomotive, Blucher at Killingworth’s White Swan Centre for a late morning reading as part of the  Heritiage Open Days weekend.

What a pity. I was looking forward to it.

The Heritage Open Days weekend has something for everyone. My recommendations in North Tyneside are the Killingworth gig and the tour of Pete Mortimer’s house in Cullercoats on Sunday.  But then I would say that. Here’s me and my rucksack  in his kitchen last year.
