Exposition: Teesside Art and Technology
You don’t have long left to get along to mima for the Teesside World Exposition of Art and Technology. In reaction to the closure of Redcar’s steelworks, this presentation is seeking to make a positive contribution to the region’s future by showcasing current developments in industry, manufacture and technology from local organisations, as well as displaying archival materials and various artworks.
Until October 9
Theatre: Putting the Band Back Together
Ever been in a college band? Got a dusty guitar propped up in the corner? It’s time to put the band back together! Part gig, part storytelling, this theatre piece explores the emotional relationships people have with music, featuring Ross Millard (The Futureheads), Maria Crocker (The Letter Room) and Alex Elliott (Northern Stage) as well as a house band of ex-players that you could be part of.
September 22, 8pm
Dining: Supper Club
Join the Tyneside Bar Café for a monthly dining experience. For September’s Supper Club (which, thankfully, we do talk about) head chef Tom Adlam will be creating delicious vegetarian dishes so that diners can feast on five courses (with wine and beer) for £35 per person. Previous themes at the Supper Club have included a celebration of spring and dishes based on the five senses – look out for a new event each month.
