Newcastle-upon-Tyne Civic Centre was opened in 1968 by HM King Olav V of Norway, taking over from Newcastle Town Hall, which was demolished in 1973. Visitors may spot a large stone on the centre’s premises, which commemorates the visit of President Jimmy Carter - who delivered a very well received speech, using the local phrase "howay the lads!"
