High Street Tales is part of the cultural programme of the High Street Heritage Action Zones (HAZ) project run by Historic England. Its aim is to create a set of stories to be broadcast and distributed online that celebrate the local high street, the people and communities who depend on them and centre their lives around theirs, and the roles they have played – and will continue to play – in our lives.

New Writing North is looking to recruit a writer to create a story about North Shields and we’re seeking, therefore a writer who either lives there, is from there or who has a connection to the town that would inform and make richer this commission. To work within the restrictions of the pandemic we are also minded that the chosen writer should live in easy reach of North Shields.
