Our Members have voted on all of our podcasts from 2022 and The Minerva Rescue came out as the favourite.

Voted as Member's Favourite of 2022


St. Hilda’s Pit disaster 1839 was the inspiration for our audio play The Tenth Bord, based on fact but is a fictionalised account of the events.

There have been script-in-hand performances of this play at the renovated St. Hilda’s pit head (2019), and at The Word in South Shields (2022)

One of our favourite characters on our interactive audio trails is The Honourable Mr Fox. He spent time at Northumberlandia in 2022 and we know he will be popping into future trails.
