Exciting news on World Book Day! And a first for Berwick Time Lines no less!
I’m pleased to be able to announce that Berwick Museum and Art Gallery will have a facsimile of the world famous Lindisfarne Gospels on display from Easter until May 17th as part of the years celebrations when the real Lindisfarne Gospels come to Durham Cathedral in July. I’ve been lucky enough to see the real thing and to think they have survived some 1300 years in such a great condition is amazing. Especially as they are meant to have been lost in the sea at one point.
We will also have a display of calligraphy by Northumberland’s finest modern penman, Tom Fleming who at 92 is having his first exhibition.
