About this Event

Newcastle Anniversaries

Local History Coordinator Sue Ryan will look back at the anniversaries celebrated and commemorated in 2019, as told in the press.

She will explore big stories such as the Hunter Valley floods and the Newcastle earthquake, the arrival of the Fairsea and the celebrations of 1929 when both the Civic Theatre and Newcastle City Hall were opened for the first time.

There are also other anniversary stories – some you might have forgotten about and others you may not know.

Discover how our newspapers informed and entertained us as we relive these events, big and small.
