Jarrow Hall Launch Day

Jarrow Hall will be open from Saturday 8th April 2017 and all throughout the Easter holidays too.

Join The Historical Combat Company with archery, clay pot making, beadwork bracelets, candle making, traditional cord-making, and see them restore Thirlings Hall using traditional skills and demonstrate Anglo-Saxon weaponry.

Take a ride on Smurf and Marley, a pair of gorgeous miniature Shetland ponies from Mini Pony Hire; meet Murphy the wolfhound and find out about the history of these giant rare breed hounds used by the Celts, romans, and Vikings; witness the beauty of stunning birds of prey with flying displays from Riverside Falconry; say hello to the rare ancient-breed animals of our working Anglo-Saxon demonstration farm; discover the incredible life story of the father of English history and see the stunning Codex Amiatinus in our Bede Museum; explore our grounds and our experimental reconstruction Anglo-Saxon dwellings; enjoy a bite to eat at Hive Coffee Company in the beautiful Jarrow Hall House.

Presented by Groundwork South Tyneside and Newcastle in partnership with South Tyneside Council and supported by Port of Tyne, over £100,000 has been invested to date to support key improvement and renovation works, so with much more to come in future we’re delighted to be fully open for our visitors, supporters and friends to enjoy.
