Dorman Museum

A River Runs Through It is the title of a day and evening of talks, film and song illustrating the role of the River Tees in history. It takes place at the Dorman Museum, Middlesbrough, on Friday, 9th September, 2016. From 10am to 4.30pm there will be a series of talks about the impact of industry on the river, wildflowers and industrial legacy, the relationship between the river and Stockton-on-Tees and the port of the Tees itself. Speakers include Martin Allen, Jeremy Garside, Tony Nicholson, Alan Betteney and John Little. This is followed by an evening of song and film, starting at 7.30pm for 8pm, and featuring Robin Dale, harpist and singer Ailsa MacKenzie and other members of The Ironopolis Singers, Ellie May Morgan and Margaret and Tony Maughan.  The songs will mainly feature the work of Graeme whose songs of the River Tees are legendary and include Blue Sunset, The Banks Of The Tees and A Great Northern River.  This is a rare day of great interest for people to embrace and take in. Tickets are available from the museum and are £3 or £4 on the door.
