There are only around 120 shopping days before Christmas, and if that fills you with dread, here is a happier thought about the festive season.
Each year donations from individuals and local business make it possible for children from the most disadvantaged parts of our region to enjoy a free and festive theatrical treat.
Last year almost 800 children received free tickets to the theatre. Corporate Partners Xsite Architecture and Bond Dickinson, whose membership supports our work in the community year-round, also donated their company tickets to local schools.
"It was a wonderful opportunity for our children; real theatre is not something which they normally have the opportunity to access and I am sure it is an experience they will remember for many years to come."
Deputy Head, Atkinson Road Primary School, Benwell, Newcastle
In 2016 you can sponsor a child, a class or a year group to see James and the Giant Peach at Northern Stage and receive a personal thank you after their visit.
