Spirit of the North

Historic England has commissioned photographer John Kippin to encapsulate the North’s rich and multi-faceted identity with a new set of photographs called ‘Spirit of the North’.

The series will be exhibited at Bessie Surtees House in Newcastle from 22 June 2018.

A new podcast series discussing the North’s great places, people and heritage will be released over the summer to accompany the exhibition.

Spirit of the North is part of the Great Exhibition of the North’s ‘Inspired by’ programme.
