Magnetic North East's Grand Launch



Magnetic North East is a new Community Interest Company formed to celebrate and promote the North East through its music, song, dance, heritage and the arts.

Our heritage is unique. It is every bit as distinct and as strong as that in Scotland, Ireland and Wales. The vision is to recognise the value of what we have and unite around this sense of identity. Magnetic North East wants to create a feeling of pride and confidence in ourselves and attract the attention, nationally and internationally, that our culture deserves.

Through the Grand Launch Concert recently held at SAGE Gateshead, Magnetic North East showcased some of our unique heritage and also demonstrated how we are not just about the past. Being part of a LIVING tradition, that awareness of where we come from gives us the confidence to be able to try new things, to explore, to be fearless…responding to contemporary society and pushing the boundaries of what we do.
