OPPORTUNITY TO BE INVOLVED WITH THE BYKER CENTRE
Slowly developing at the top of Byker Hill is a project which could have a huge impact on the Tyneside arts world in years to come.
There, a small group of us is changing St. Michael’s church and grounds into an arts and heritage centre which will not only serve the local east end population but will also have a regional importance because of its stunning position which gives spectacular views over Newcastle, Gateshead and the Tyne Gorge.
On July 14th the first phase of its redevelopment will be opened – its Community Garden. One of its attractions will be an amphitheatre for open air performances, which will have the magnificent view as its backdrop.
We are looking for artists of all kinds, visual, performing, musical and literary to help us make the most of the facilities we are developing.
Starting from the Opening in July we hope to begin developing a programme of activities both inside and outside the church, initially involving the local community but also gradually attracting regional, national and international visitors!
