We've teamed up with our friends at nine leading cultural venues to create The Insider - a new invite list that'll bring you the best exhibitions, shows, events and a special offer or two.

It might be a screening at Tyneside Cinema, a private view at BALTIC, a backstage tour at Live Theatre, Northern Stage or Dance City, a family day at Seven Stories or Discovery Museum, winter ice-skating at Centre for Life or a special event at Sage Gateshead.

It's completely free to join - you can Register here.

We won’t bombard you with emails. But we will make sure that you always get The Insider knowledge. Before everyone else finds out.
