Stuart Miller describes graphically the shocking arrival of Cholera in Sunderland in the Autumn of 1831.

A mysterious and devastating new disease emerges from Asia. "The Science" is divided about the causes and the treatment.

Politicians lie, deceive and deny. The business community prefer profit to people. Life is never the same again...

NO, not Covid-19 but CHOLERA!

In this talk local author, Glenda Young takes you on a trip down memory lane with some wonderful old pictures of Ryhope Village....

.....showing the locations that inspire her novels.

Set around markets and paper mills, with stories of rag and bone men, stolen children, and escape from a life of prostitution, Glenda’s books pack a dramatic punch.

Join her on this nostalgic look back at old Ryhope and how the village continues to inspire her bestselling books.
