Coming Soon! Where Your Wings Were… Journeys with David Almond

Opens Thursday 21st June 2018

Embark on a journey through Tyneside like never before, discovering how its landscapes, language and people inspired the magical stories of David Almond.

Delve into the writer’s dreamlike world where tales such as Skellig and My Dad’s a Birdman took root.

Bringing to life Almond’s archive, the exhibition at Seven Stories explores themes of love, loss and hope though characters real and imagined.

Meet angels and devils, question what it means to be human and experience the North East through the eyes of one of its most creative sons.

This exhibition is part of the Winged Tails of the North trail; both trail and exhibition are delivered as part of the Great Exhibition of the North 2018.  Great Exhibition of the North receives funding from a variety of sources including public and private sector.
