Coronavirus Update: Statement from Abigail Pogson, Managing Director
In recent weeks and months organisations across the country have been talking and listening to government about how they should operate in the coming months. And arts organisations are no different. And we’ve also been listening to you, our audience, through A Future for Live Music in the North East.
Recently we launched our 20/21 season of online activity alongside a return to live performances this October with a seven-week series of concerts for everyone.
‘Sage Live 2020’ is a live performance series starting on 23 October and running to December. You can find the line-up and information on how to book here.
In planning this series, we have made the safety of our audiences, artists and staff our top priority. Our decision to go ahead with live performance was made after careful, detailed planning to ensure we can operate in a COVID-secure way.
You’ll be able to experience live music in our world-class, COVID-secure venue or join a live streamed performance.
Make Music is taking place for the first time online. This new range of online classes, which includes daytime and evening singing and instrumental sessions will be relaxed, fun and suitable for singers and players of varying ability from beginners to those who fancy a bit more of a challenge.
Please sign up for our newsletter or log into your account and update your contact preferences to make sure that we can contact you by email to ensure you’re the first to hear about our events.
Thank you for your patience and your continued support. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Covid-19 presents Sage Gateshead with an urgent financial challenge. In response, we have launched a three-year, 2020-23, plan to meet this challenge and to serve communities and audiences in the North for the long-term.
This ambitious plan means we must raise £3 million.Find out more
