High on a hill once striped with dense terraces...
Due east of a city built on ships and coal...
Byker lives...

Northern Stage Young Company Ensemble, The Team and their co-collaborators from across the North East present Welcome to Byker - a show inspired, ignited and spoken by the people of the Byker Wall estate.

From the bingo-calling lad who loses his spark to the boy who finally finds it, along Raby Street arteries and Avondale veins, past divas in their trees and the Gods at their doors comes a fusion of spoken word, live music and infectious joy.

Welcome to Byker invites you behind the rows of brightly coloured doors, past kisses and punches and the brushes of shoulders in shops, and into the heart of NE6 where you can be anyone.

Young Company is supported by The Ballinger Charitable Trust, The Shears Foundation and The Wellesley Trust
