South Shields’ Town Hall 100 years old

with one comment

I hate missing a good birthday party

South Shields Town Hall is still, in my opinion, one of the finest public buildings in the north of England, it is a picture of municipal magnificence both externally and internally and nothing would have given me greater pleasure than using it as a photographic backdrop for the Catherine Cookson Parade on Saturday. If we are blessed with good weather gentle sunshine, a few clouds, and gentle breezes) then we could expect good crowds, a festive party atmosphere, good fun, and a celebration. It’s a good opportunity to spot some of your elected South Tyneside councillors letting their hair down – if they have any – and having some fun, although it appears that some have rather less to celebrate than others.

But, alas, for the first time in many years, I will not be there, but I encourage you to get down into South Shields with your cameras and make good use of them . Barring some sort of mini miracle, I am informed that I must be at home on Saturday to play “labourer” to the joiners who are fitting a new kitchen. Pah – who worked out the timing for this project!

So at least Tim Richardson and Alan White won’t be busting a gut to get their pictures ready for Sunday morning ha ha, but here’s an appeal, send me your best carnival pictures to the email address found in the contact page and if there are enough of them by Sunday evening I’ll make up a little slide show for the rest of the readers to see. No prizes, just the sheer fun and kudos of seeing your work on the internet. Pictures showing councillors in a bad light, compromised, or generally just having the mickey taken out of them will go to the front of the queue.

  1. The Town Hall is pure class, got married their 9 years ago (shame scaffolding was on the clock section at the time) and the inside is top notch.

    I think John Grundy (ITV history programme) named this as his best town hall in the north east – top bloke
