As dusk settles and darkness falls, hear tales of Arbeia, South Shields' Roman Fort's dramatic past.

These celestial candlelit tours are the perfect way to step back, enjoy and reflect at this special time of year.

The experience includes an introduction from the museum curator, a Q&A session and free time to explore the reconstructed Commanding Officer's House. 

Light refreshments including hot drinks and biscuits will be available.
