If you like South Shields, you’ll love this!
From the area’s shipbuilding and river work heritage to footage of its famous writers – Catherine Cookson and James Mitchell, South Shields on Film will take you on a visual journey through the history of the people and places of South Tyneside caught on celluloid over the last century.

From home movies, local documentaries and Tyne Tees Television productions, the films capture the changing landscape, industries, sights, sounds, faces and places of South Shields and the surrounding area.
This screening is brought to you as part of our North East on Film project, connecting the people and communities of the region with their film heritage, through special screenings and events and online activities and is supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
