Culture and Cake

Come along to Culture & Cake, the first of many events to run from Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums new 'Platinum Programme' - a culture and heritage programme of activities and experiences for people aged over 55.
Have you ever fancied going behind the scenes at Discovery Museum and having an in-depth look at the vast costume collection? Well Culture & Cake will allow you to do this as well as listening to one of our experts and having a cup of tea or coffee and cake in the Turbinia Cafe after.
