They say that if you remember the 1960s you weren’t really there but many people who lived, worked and played in Newcastle during the 1960s have vivid memories of that exciting decade. Newcastle experienced huge changes as old landmarks were swept away and new ones rose in their place.

From the Club A’Go Go to the new highrise flats people were on the move. Recapture that extraordinary atmosphere through this evocative mix of memories and pictures.
