Earlier this year, cities were invited to bid to put on a ‘Great Exhibition of the North’, which will celebrate the best of art, culture and design across the northern regions. Sponsored by DCMS the exhibition will run for two months and help investment and tourism in the region. From nine strong proposals, four areas have been shortlisted: Blackpool, Bradford, Sheffield and Newcastle-Gateshead.

On the blog we take a look at some of the significant historical sites in each area that might boost their bid to win this huge cultural investment; http://bit.ly/2dPFoqt

Out There: Our Post-War Public Art, opens tomorrow at Bessie Surtees House in Newcastle.

To celebrate, Rebecca Farley from Newcastle University looks beyond the Angel of the North, at 55 years of Public Art in Newcastle-Gateshead http://bit.ly/2c7djcA
The Angel of the North may be Newcastle-Gateshead’s (and probably the UK’s) most well known public artwork but the city has a much longer history of public art making, going back at least to the ea…

The first August Bank Holiday in 1872 prompted an exodus of people from England’s cities to the seaside, including to Hastings where the new pier opened on that day.

Using our archives, we explore how English beach holidays have changed over the centuries. http://bit.ly/2bwiGGK

Following the Gothic Revivial in architecture that dominated Victorian Britain, the late-nineteenth century saw a resurgence of Georgian principles.

A new book Neo Georgian Architecture 1880-1970s explores and interrogates the era: http://bit.ly/2dcq3EL
You might think you know about Georgian architecture but what is Neo-Georgian? How does it differ from the original and what difference does that little word ‘neo’ make? Written by Elizabeth McKell…

Shipwrecks don’t just happen in the deep sea: many ships are driven ashore or lie slowly decaying along riverbanks, estuaries, and creeks. Yesterday, the Department for Culture, Media and Sport gave protection to three such ‘shoreline’ wrecks on Historic England’s recommendation.

Street furniture, the name given to objects like postboxes, benches and road signs, are part of everyday life in England.
