Having visited Horden Horse Fair last year, this year I succumbed to peer pressure by visiting Appleby Horse Fair for the first time. I was somewhat reticent as it has become a bit of a Mecca for club photographers. Whether or not my photographs do it justice it was a rewarding day for me. I’ll certainly be back!
Newcastle has a thriving Chinatown centred around the Stowell Street area. On Sunday 29th January the Chinese community treated onlookers to the traditional New Year lion and dragon dances with the backdrop of the Chinese Arch and St James Park. Kung Hey Fat Choi!
