Come along to this FREE event at Boldon Community Association. Learn more about Stringing Bedes: A Poetry and Print Pilgrimage. This is a project which has celebrated the landscapes and life of the Venerable Bede.
During summer 2015 the project co-ordinated a series of guided walks along Bede's Way, which passes along New Road, Boldon and this heritage event commemorates these walks.
The evening will feature:
Illustrated presentations about Bede,
the walks, heritage and wildlife
Readings of poetry inspired by walking through Bede's landscape
Displays and refreshments.
The Sringing Bedes project is co-ordinated by the University of Sunderland's WALK research group assisted by Bede's World, South Tyneside Council and the Sunderland Cultural Partnership. It is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
