The Big Sing 2018: Spirit of the North

This year we are joining the Great Exhibition of the North to celebrate who we are, what makes us special and what we can become.

A much-loved annual event, The Big Sing, supported by The Kavli Trust, offers schools a great opportunity to learn new repertoire and to expand pupils’ musical horizons in a fun and engaging way throughout the school year, culminating in an uplifting performance in Sage One at Sage Gateshead in the Summer term. This year’s event features two new commissions specially written for the Great Exhibition of the North by Sharon Durant and Peter Brewis (Field Music).

Both 2018 performances are now sold out. Please complete the form below and if spaces become available we will be in touch.

We are delighted to support schools with Arts Award and Artsmark; please contact us at if you are interested in talking further about either. In association with the Great Exhibition of the North and Sing Up.

Project supported by

The Big Sing and Big Sing for Mini Singers is supported by The Kavli Trust. The Big Sing programme brings the joy of singing to more than 3,000 children in schools across the North East and Cumbria region, culminating in a series of inspirational concerts at Sage Gateshead. The Kavli Trust, which owns Norway’s Kavli group, produces the well-known Kavli and Primula spreadable cheeses and Q-Meieriene dairy products as well as other food products in Norway, Sweden, Finland and the UK have worked with Sage Gateshead since 2014, supporting culture.

Part of this project was funded by Art50, a scheme commissioned by Sky Arts to explore the notion of British identity in the wake of Brexit.
