Review: Hopeless Romantics @ Queens Hall, Hexham

We live in a world where we obtain everything instantly, we are glued to our phones and expect everything at an instance.

The Journal Culture Awards 2017

I would not have this blog if it was not for Culture, especially being in the North East- it is a cultural hub for both artist and audience. That was pertinent at The Journal Cultural Awards at the magnificent Hexham Abbey. Yes the awards were held a little more closer to home for me in… Continue reading The Journal Culture Awards 2017

Culture Trip 4: St James’ Park Tour

Review: VERVE @ Queens Hall, Hexham

It’s interesting to see how the language of dance can be translated in so many ways. The choreographer can create a dance piece with an intention of how they want the audience to see it but that doesn’t mean that is how the audience experience it the same way. Northern School of Contemporary Dance presented… Continue reading Review: VERVE @ Queens Hall, Hexham
