THE LATE SHOWS – Tropicana Night with PALA magazine

Sat 19th May 2018

NewBridge Books, BALTIC 39, 39 High Bridge, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 1EW

Join us for a display and sneak peek of PALA, an independent art and travel magazine that reflects on the sprawling nature of travel and is inspired by the feelings of escapism that we yearn for.

Everything from the design of the magazine to how the content is presented gives an abstract perspective of travel, almost as if those going on these trips are like explorers of old, discovering locations for the first time. Many threads run through the magazine, with a hybrid of classic travel articles, paintings, short stories and other pieces that bring it together almost like a vintage travel almanac.

Along with the magazine work, expect visual surprises, adventures and mixed flavoured tropical music!


The Late Shows is a free late-night culture crawl taking place in Newcastle and Gateshead over the weekend of Friday 18 – Saturday 19 May 2018. During The Late Shows, museums, galleries, studio collectives and landmark historical buildings come together to offer visitors one-off events including hands-on workshops, behind-the-scenes tours, and performances.
