The Trinity House coat of arms - The Banqueting Hall

Our pre-Christmas event this year was held in the multi-layered historical context of Trinity House, Newcastle. Even those of us who have visited this complex before learned something new about the buildings and their contents as we were shown around in specialist guided tours.

These were followed by a seasonal buffet, provided by Boldon Farmhouse Pantry (who also catered our AGM back in May). This was in the Banqueting Hall, accompanied by mulled wine (sober alternatives available).

The evening was rounded off with a short but humiliating art and architecture quiz devised by one of our committee members.
