Welcome to the MPN Newcastle BIG GIG 2021!

Our annual Big Gig has become a legendary celebration of all of our Wider Opportunities programmes in Newcastle.
Each year, thousands of primary-aged children from schools across Newcastle get together at Sports Central at Northumbria University to showcase their achievements, with a morning of workshop activities and an afternoon performance for teachers, parents and carers.
This year, our Big Gig will be a bit different...but we would still love you to take part!  We will be holding a virtual event on JUNE 15th 2021 and would love for your school to get involved.
Details are coming soon...but for now, see below for how to access the music for this year's Big Gig so that you can get playing, practicing and perfecting this year's pieces!
