Our film of the events we organized during 2013 is now embedded: go to the ‘Festival’ menu, and then ‘Film’.    It is called PREPARING FOR AN EXPO.

For further background to our proposals, see the Festival Menu,  ‘Background to GNF’ for the original letter floating the idea and ‘Ignite’ for 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. 

In the light of our recent AGM, we are planning to link together as many organizations concerned for the future of the North East.  Information will become available here on our website as the summer and autumn progresses.

For our link organization, ‘The Great Debate’ and the debates it organises see the ‘Partners and Sponsors’ page.
