Literary & Philosophical Society Newcastle

The Lit & Phil Library is Newcastle’s exquisite secret library, open to all and free to explore and browse.  Established in 1825 on Westgate Road, just yards from Central Station, we became a hub of learning and enlightenment long before the city’s universities existed and today continue to inspire minds, stimulate imaginations and confer a wealth of knowledge to young and old alike.... 

Frenchlinks le portail français de Geoff Hare

Geoff worked for 30 years as a lecturer in French Studies in higher education, and his French Links list is well known as an excellent gateway to information about contemporary France and things French. It has been available to the academic community and beyond since 1997 and currently contains over 1200 different links. It lists many sites in France and elsewhere, mainly institutional and academic sites, rather than personal ones.

Tyneside Cinema is a thriving social hub and registered charity which aims to enrich people’s lives by thinking differently about and through film.

Cinéma Star & Shadow


Star and Shadow Cinema is a volunteer-run DIY space for Newcastle, Tyne and Wear, and the north east UK.  It is set up as an open-to-join co-operative housed in a building it owns, dedicated to culture coming from and/or programmed by the grass roots - particularly cinema and music. 

Emphasising the collective experience that makes Cinema special, Star and Shadow exists as a space for a dialogic approach to culture through critical, active spectatorship: watching, listening, thinking and talking collectively and then possibly programming something yourself, as opposed to buying your ticket, sitting or standing in the dark and then heading home. 

FMRG French Media Research Group (Newcastle)

The French Media Research Group was founded in Spring 1995 by Dr Hugh Dauncey (Newcastle University), Dr Geoff Hare (Newcastle University, now Honorary Senior Research fellow) and Dr Sheila Perry (then University of Northumbria, now University of Nottingham). The FMRG's activities and the publications of H. Dauncey and G. Hare on media were part of the French submission to RAE2001 (1996-2001), when the Film and Media unit was 'flagged' as being of the highest 5-star quality although the unit itself was not in a department rated as 5-star overall. In December 2008, the FMRG became affiliated - as a 'thematic branch' - to the Association for the Study of Modern & Contemporary France.
