Georgian Cluedo is a short Georgian era inspired performance originally organised and performed by young people. Young people took part in Helix Arts’ Make it Happen to plan their own event. They worked with writer Debbie Beeks to create the initial Georgian Cluedo performance in 2022.

This reworked show builds on the work produced previously. Debbie Beeks delves further into the history of the square and its inhabitants. Performed at The Exchange Theatre 1856, as part of the Heritage Action Zone celebration, Georgian Cluedo invites audiences to discover the mysteries and secrets surrounding the inhabitants of Northumberland Square and North Shields.

Special Thank You

We would like to give special thanks to all of the young people who have taken part in Make It Happen, Claire Entwistle and Sonya Martin from John Spence Community High School. Thanks to Dave Young who advised on the reworked script.
