Nine enchanting memories from South Shields, Boldon and Hebburn as we look forward to National Magic Day later this week
Who knew! National Magic Day arrives on Sunday.
And for our latest trick, we pulled these 9 retro images out of the Shields Gazette archives.
They all show magic scenes from the borough in recent years and were taken at venues including Cheviot Junior School, the Customs House, Boldon School, and St Oswald’s School in Hebburn.
National Magic Week celebrates the thrill of watching magic shows in action.
But in the meantime, why not enjoy a reminder of performances or two closer to home.
