An exhibition focusing on the activities of motor lifeboats during the Great War.

The Old Low Light sits on the spot where North Shields began many centuries ago. Its vital role was to lead mariners safely into the Tyne. We are working to make sure it continues to have an important role in the North Shields community.

North Shields has a great story to tell and at the Old Low Light we want to tell that story. We work with local enthusiasts and groups to find out more about our town and find interesting new ways to share this through our gallery, activities and our events.

We want to continue to be part of the North Shields’ story. We’re proud to have had a key role in bringing the Old Low Light back into use and we want to keep supporting the renewal of the Fish Quay. We use local companies and suppliers wherever we can and we are working to provide jobs, training and work experience to local people. As a charity, every penny spent at the Old Low Light will be used to help us keep going and give back more.

Venue: Old Low Light
