Authors Evenings

Twice a year the Arts & Culture group organise an Authors Evening, where we showcase local and nationally recognised authors.

In Nov 2017, we were very pleased to have internationally recognised crime writer Ann Cleeves visit Morpeth to read and discuss her latest Vera novel “The Seagull”. Ann is in demand around the world due to the huge success of her books and TV series of both “Vera” and “Shetland”, and GMDT appreciated her supporting this type of local event which she normally would not do.

Another Authors Evening will be held on Thurs 14 Nov 2019. This will be a collaboration with Morpeth Library. We are working with some local authors and have booked Miles Hewitt who will present his book “Miles and Miles” a travel adventure. Books will be available for sale on the night. More authors will be announced soon.
