culture: Sage Gateshead All Areas Tour; The Sage Gateshead.

LAST month The Sage Gateshead was included in the prestigious Rough Guide list of 10 best buildings in England of the last 100 years. Since opening in 2004 the building has seen more than 1,400 performances, a staggering 40,000+ Learning and Participation sessions, and more than two million visitors through its doors.

To give visitors the chance to see more of this iconic building there are hour-long public tours twice a month, and specialist technical tours and private Access All Areas tours can also be arranged.

On an Access All Areas Tour visitors get to see what goes on behind the scenes, including the backstage area, dressing rooms and artists' Green Room, as well as all the main performance spaces and music education centre. Tours for groups of 10-25 people are led by a member of the friendly Customer Service Team.

Access All Areas tours usually cost pounds 7 per head for groups of 10-25 people, but The Sage Gateshead is delighted to offer Culture Club members an exclusive free Access All Areas tour on Wednesday, July 9 at 1pm. Spaces are limited and must be pre-booked on a first come, first served basis. To book your space contact Rachel on (0191) 201-6369 or email with your name, address, contact telephone number and number of places (max of 2 per member).
