Great North Festival (GNF)
Our events in preparation for a Great North Festival are successfully completed. Read the reports in ‘News’. A report with ideas and suggestions will be available in the Spring.
A film of the year’s events will be shown on March 12th, 2014 after the AGM – the meeting will be free and open.
For the background to this event follow the Festival Menu, ’Background to GNF’ and the ‘Ignite’ article – written for the the British Science Association Festival (BSAF – Sept 7-12, 2013) Look also at the Video of the re-enactment of William Armstrong’s ‘Admirable Speech, which he gave to the 1863 festival in Newcastle – 150 years ago. http://www.williamarmstrong.info
Now we are looking to a sustainable creative future for the North East. Look out for our report which will set out all that we have learnt this year about what is needed.
