This event, organized in partnership between The Northern Correspondent and the Baltic Centre will take place at BALTIC Level 1 on Sunday 15th May from 10.30am to 12.30pm - the morning of the final day of the season. The discussion will consider questions such as:

  • What are the key challenges and opportunities for football in the north east?
  • How might we reconnect football with north east communities?
  • What role could football play in regenerating our region, and meeting its needs?
  • How successful has the north east been in integrating football into other areas of public and cultural life?
  • What are the opportunities for collaboration and partnership?

Confirmed panelists include:

  • Ian Mearns, MP for Gateshead
  • Roger Domeneghetti, author of From the Back Page to the Front Room
