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 had been arranged on Thurs 14 Nov 2019, in collaboration with Morpeth Library. For reasons beyond our control, we have had to postpone this event but hope to reschedule early in the New Year. We will update website when we have more details, please accept our apologies for any disappointment caused by this postponement.
