Angels and Demons: A Pictorial History
@ Newcastle CastleBook Now
17 November 2017
18:00 To 19:00
£4.50, Payable Via Eventbrite. Tickets On Sale 6 October
Join cultural historian Gail-Nina Anderson for her latest talk. Messengers between humanity and the higher spheres and guardians of good children, feathery-winged angels haunt our culture and art, along with their altogether darker siblings, the demons. This pictorial survey illustrates our changing concept of the angel/demon, revealing a wealth of fascinating imagery.
Gail is a popular public speaker in Newcastle upon Tyne. She is an expert on folklore and art-related themes – particularly when they are tinged with elements of the gothic and the macabre. Her lively, illustrated lectures at the Black Gate are always popular and regularly sell out.
The Black Gate has a lift and is fully accessible to wheelchair users. Refreshments – including tea and coffee – will be available to purchase at this event.
Tickets for this event will go on sale at 12 midday on Friday 6 October, via the link below.
