ST HILDA'S PIT HEAD

ST HILDA'S PIT HEAD HAS PLAYED HOST TO A WIDE VARIETY OF ACTIVITIES, EVENTS AND WORKSHOPS. FROM VINTAGE CLOTHES SALES, CHRISTMAS FAYRES, WREATH-MAKING WORKSHOPS AND FULL THEATRE PRODUCTIONS, ST HILDA'S HAS BEEN BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE.

THE PIT HEAD IS ROOTED IN THE HISTORY OF SOUTH TYNESIDE, AND THE CREATIVE SEED HAVE HELPED FACILITATE EXHIBITIONS WHICH HAVE BEEN TRIBUTES TO THE MINERS AND THE DISASTER AT ST HILDA'S IN 1839.

 

DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC, ST. HILDA'S HAS BEEN CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC, AS THE SPACE CAN NOT PROPERLY ACCOMODATE SOCIAL DISTANCING. HOWEVER, THE CREATIVE SEED HAVE USED THIS AS AN OPPORTUNITY TO DEVELOP A MEDIA HUB, ALLOWING FOR THE LAUNCH OF OUR POPULAR SESSIONS FROM THE PIT YOUTUBE CHANNEL, AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR OTHER DIGITAL PROJECTS IN THE FUTURE.
