Creative support for the cultural sector

Proud creators of cultural mischief across the North East – always striving to turn heads, push boundaries, challenge and excite audiences.

We’ve done thousands of shows and events over the years – from pop-up art exhibitions to club nights, one-off commissions to festivals, comedy clubs to world cinema seasons, markets to workshops, kitchen takeovers to spoken word sessions and so much more, entertaining literally millions of people and giving work opportunities to over a thousand young people along the way.

We’ve had a venue of our own, held a fair few parties, helped create some amazing art and promoted shows with music acts including Oasis, The Arctic Monkeys, Blur, Coldplay and Fatboy Slim alongside comedy superstars such as Lee Evans, Michael McIntyre, Jon Richardson, Kathryn Ryan and Frankie Boyle – see History page for more.

Currently working on a range of shows and events and providing creative and logistical support services to partners from both the public and private sectors – check out the Current Shows & Projects page to see what we’re up to.

Event Planning & Delivery

Whether it’s a one-off show a festival or a season of events, we can help with all aspects of planning and delivery.

Original concepts. Booking and commissioning. Budgets and tech specs. Running the show on the day – we can do the lot.

In-your-face Marketing Campaigns

We love to turn heads.

Let us bring some creativity to your campaign. Digital, print and street activity – we can cover it all.

We can also run PR campaigns, supply copywriting services and cover your photography and videography needs too.

Programming & Booking

From bold and leftfield to mainstream crowdpleasers, we can help animate your venue, festival, village or town.

It’s not just about off-the-shelf agency bookings. We can do out-of-the-ordinary concepts and love a bit of mix n match. Why not add in a bit of food, street activity, live art or retail? Time to get creative.

Audience Development Across all Artforms

Who do you want in? Who are you missing? We’re all about bums on seats. Let us help find and build an audience for you then get them on board with a creative combination of communication, interventions and activities.  It doesn’t have to cost a fortune either.
