Museum in Sting memorabilia plea

Sting was born in Wallsend near Newcastle

Museum staff are calling for people to lend Sting or The Police memorabilia for a new exhibition.

Segedunum Roman Fort, Baths and Museum is staging a display which features a photograph of the Tyneside singer from the National Portrait Gallery.

Geoff Woodward, manager of North Tyneside Museums, said he wanted items such as concert tickets, posters and badges to go alongside the image.

The exhibition, which started on Saturday, runs until 26 May.

It is part of North Face, a region-wide project showing ten portraits of north east celebrities simultaneously at ten different cultural venues.

Other displays include portraits of comedians Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer at the Dorman Museum in Middlesbrough, comedy actor Rowan Atkinson at Berwick Borough Museum and football legend Jack Charlton at Hexham Old Gaol.
