The very first Tyne Idols Tours
Way back in early July 2010, we set off on what was the first couple of a squillion Tyne Idols bus tours. Still fine-tuning the route and order of things, we ended up adding some places to visit and discarding others due to time/distance constraints, access issues, or just lack of interest.
There is almost an embarrassment of music, film and cultural heritage riches in and around Newcastle City to squeeze into a reasonable 3-hour tour time, and what we had in mind needed some rigorous testing. So, with a beautiful vintage bus a-bulge with the poor bunnies to be experimented on (friends, promoters, musicians and various other off-beat characters), we trundled off in search of merriment.
