STING TO BE SAGE GATESHEAD ARCHES PROJECT PATRON

Sting has been named as patron of a £1.5m project by The Sage Gateshead to create a training base for young people. The scheme aims to transform the arches behind the venue into a purpose-built centre for disadvantaged and vulnerable young people. The project is currently based in temporary buildings and demand means the space is being outgrown. Wallsend-born Sting said it was an important project. He said: “Having grown up on Tyneside, I’m pleased to support this appeal for The Arches project and The Sage Gateshead’s ongoing commitment to creating opportunities for today’s young musicians and music lovers in the North East.”
