Accessibility: NewBridge Studios has limited accessibility, this event will take place in the Annex Space on the first floor of NewBridge Studios. We regret, due to the age of our building and its change of use we do not have a functioning lift. Please contact us prior to visiting if you require additional information regarding access and facilities



We are able to make most of our events available at low or no cost because of the financial support which we receive from the European Regional Development Fund.

This funding comes through the ERDF Competitiveness Programme 2007-13, and is intended to help support the development of Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) in the creative industries in the North East of England.
