Steps in Time

Wander the streets searching for new poems specially commissioned for the 2017 Newcastle Poetry Festival.

Steps in Time is a poetry app that guides you on a poem-walk across Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Discover, through poetry, the secret histories of lesser-known places like Dog Leap Stairs and High Friar Lane, and celebrate iconic buildings such as the Civic Centre and Grainger Market. Sixteen regionally-based poets offer up their responses to sixteen unique locations to tell new stories and shine new light on the cultural and social history of Newcastle.

Steps in Time has been launched to celebrate the 2017 Newcastle Poetry Festival, which runs from 9th - 13th May. The locations chosen for the app form a loose path between Northern Stage and Sage Gateshead, the two venues for the festival.

DISCLAIMER: Users using the map to navigate Newcastle upon Tyne and Gateshead do so at their own risk. Newcastle University accepts no responsibility or ownership over the locations listed.
