The Story of the Tyne Kittiwakes

Celebrating our Geordie Kittiwakes with Hector Gannet

Join Wild Intrigue and Hector Gannet for a night celebrating our Tyne Kittiwakes, the world’s most inland seabird colony!

Join Wild Intrigue to watch as the Kittiwakes make their winter journey out to the North Sea on a short wildlife safari along North Shields Fish Quay, and discover their story in a talk hosted in The Engine Room, with a coffee or something a little colder…

The celebration will continue into the night with a full performance by Hector Gannet, with songs from their debut album Big Harcar.

Join us to give the Geordie Kittiwakes, the send off they deserve!

All profits from this event will be used to conserve the Kittiwakes along the Tyne.
