Live Theatre is set to host an incredible event on Thursday 7th March, as Our City Our Story arrives for one day only. A totally new kind of event, and something very different for our region, Live Theatre is going to be filled with stories from 11,000 children and young people on Tyneside. Also featuring as part of an incredible day is a panel discussion with Councillors from Gateshead and Newcastle, and a guest appearance by comedian Mark Thomas.

Our City Our Story is a powerful insight into what it’s truly like to grow up in Tyneside. The stories draw on truth and passion from young people who City Of Dreams are making real efforts to create a lasting engagement with, and between those young people and North East culture. It’s a landmark occasion with dozens of films, poems, animations, performances, virtual reality, alternative city maps, and interactive exhibitions. It’s all made by young people, for young people. This is all about how young people engage with the area they live in and how they access cultural activity and should make for something truly astounding for all in attendance.

Our City Our Story is at Live Theatre, Newcastle on Thursday 7th March.
