Newcastle Noir 2016 (25th April-1st May)



We’re almost there!!!! In a week’s time the Newcastle Noir 2016 Fringe Events will be underway.

On the Friday evening we’ll be celebrating the official launch of the festival in the company of award-winning writer, Ann Cleeves. Then over the weekend we’ll have an amazing array of local, national and international crime writers speaking about their work. Val McDermid, Sophie Hannah, Mari Hannah Yrsa Sigurdardottir and Gunnar Staalesen are just a few of the authors signed up for Newcastle Noir 2016.

We hope we can entice you along for a criminally fine festival! Click here to see what’s on offer!!!

All best,
