Registered Charity No: 1087445 (England & Wales) as the North Music Trust.

Home of Royal Northern Sinfonia and Folkworks.

As both the hub of one of the largest networks of music learning and participation projects in the world and an internationally renowned live music venue, we create sustainable and life-changing opportunities through music for people of all ages, backgrounds and experience across two main integrated areas:

  • an international performance programme, presenting more than 400 concerts each year across all musical styles, including Royal Northern Sinfonia, orchestra of Sage Gateshead;
  • a network of accessible music learning and participation projects and activities reaching more than a million people a year across the 10,000 square miles of the North East and Cumbria as well as nationally and internationally, and involving people of all ages from children under five to adults in their nineties.

A legacy gift to Sage Gateshead will have a long-lasting impact, helping to sustain our work in perpetuity. It will enable us to continue to offer opportunities for thousands of people to experience music, access music training, nurture their talents, skills and confidence through music and so progress to life-changing opportunities.

If you decide to include a gift to Sage Gateshead in your Will, please let us know so that we can welcome you as a member of our Legacy Circle, and thank you during your lifetime for your pledge through a closer association with the music-making you will be supporting.
