‘Percy the Pelican’ visits the Hancock.

NHSN Council Room

Friday 8 September 11.00am – 3.30pm

We will be opening the doors of our prestigious Council Room in the Great North Museum: Hancock as part of the national Heritage Open Day weekend.

Drop in to see some of our fascinating archive material relating to the popular specimen of Percy the Pelican. Percy lived on the River Coquet at Warkworth from 1973 until his death in 1976 and starred in the Museum bird gallery for 30 years as a stand alone exhibit.

You can also see the historic furnishings and paintings in the room and speak to the Society’s archivist June Holmes.
