As we said last week, it breaks our hearts to see our artists out of work and for our venues to shut their doors.
We know that this is not forever and that PAs all over Newcastle will be getting switched on & cranked up when we are given the all clear from health authorities.
We have started a list of links, resources, support and information available to help you navigate this trying time.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE AND HELP IS AVAILABLE
Please let us know of any others we can add to the list.
