A NEW play about internationally renowned scholar the Venerable Bede will be performed in South Tyneside this week after winning lottery cash.

Bede Productions has received £5,800 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to bring the famous saint and his Anglo-Saxon times to life.

Actors will use a backdrop of exhibits at Bede’s World museum in Church Bank, Jarrow, when they present the historical play to local schoolchildren.
