Christmas Event

The Mining Institute, Westgate Road, Newcastle upon Tyne

Tuesday 12 December 2017, 6.45 pm


Drawing of the Mining Institute in the 19th century

The Mining Institute owns one of the finest buildings in Newcastle, Neville Hall, a Victorian building from the time when high-Gothic architecture was coming into fashion. Neville Hall houses the memorial to the Institute's first President, Nicholas Wood, and an outstanding library resplendent with exquisite carved stone, wood and paintings, together with beautifully decorated ceilings, a vast glass roof and furniture designed for the library in 1872.

Our evening took the usual format of talk and tour, and a buffet followed by an art and architecture quiz, presented by Tom Yellowley.

The booking form which was circulated to members is available download as a PDF file, for reference.
