PORT OF TYNE WINS BEST ARTS AND BUSINESS PARTNERSHIP IN THE CULTURE AWARDS 01 Jul 2015

Hundreds of people gathered for the ninth annual culture awards at Sunderland Minster (30 June) as the cream of the North East cultural quarter were recognised and rewarded for their work during 2014.

 

Having been held in Newcastle Gateshead and Durham since their debut in 2007, it was Sunderland's turn to do the honours - and what wonderful hosts they were.

Held in association with See It Do It Sunderland, Sunderland Bid and North East Cultural Partnership and with Grants for the Arts funding from Arts Council England, The Journal Culture Awards 2014 offered an evening of celebration, which will live long in the memory of all who were there - both on and off the stage.

In all, 16 trophies, made by Gateshead artist, Corinne Lewis-Ward thanks to sponsorship from Historic England, were handed out in categories including Performing Artist of the Year, Writer of the Year, Best Events in Northumberland, Tyneside, Sunderland, Durham and Teesside, Best Newcomer, Performance of the Year and Visual Artist of the Year.

The Port of Tyne won the Best Arts and Business Partnership award for its involvement with Great North Run Culture, The Customs House, Theatre Royal, Live Theatre and many more arts and cultural partnerships.

Stuart Birkett, ncjMedia's managing director said: "The Journal North East Culture Awards help showcase regional artistic talent and what better way to do that than on such a wonderful evening.

"It was great so see a fantastic range of finalists, winners and performers on show in the up-and-coming cultural hotspot of Sunderland. It will be difficult to work out where to take the awards next year, but for now, let's enjoy the moment and say thanks to Sunderland, and well done to everyone who took part."
