Arts and Galleries

Holy Name Galleries Club

From Catherine Hearne: Two remaining outings are planned for the spring and summer. In October we will be visiting Amsterdam.

Yorkshire Sculpture Park
This is a centre of international importance for the production and exhibition of modern and contemporary sculpture. It’s an exceptional balance of art, heritage and learning in the open air. There will be a day trip from Jesmond by coach on Saturday 25 June to include a guided tour. Costs are yet to be confirmed. There are up to 20 places. Bring a picnic!  Information:

National Galleries of Scotland in Edinburgh
On Saturday 20 August there is a guided tour of “Inspiring Impressionism: Daubigny, Monet and Van Gogh”. We probably will take in another exhibition. I’m waiting for information about numbers and costs. I recommend you book your own rail ticket for this trip. Edinburgh will be busy as the International and Fringe Festivals will be in full flow. Information:

If you’d like to come along to one or more of our trips, email me: or you may telephone/text on 07948 467207.
