At the end of 2021, Streetwise Opera is withdrawing from the North East and our singing and creative workshops in Newcastle are being taken over by our partners at St. James’ and St. Basil’s Church in Fenham (Music Director: Simon Davies-Fidler). 

From 6 August to 5 November 2021, we will be delivering transitional workshops in partnership with St. James’ and St. Basil’s Church. 

These free sessions, open to anyone with experience of homelessness, are a great opportunity to sing and have fun, explore exciting stories and characters, and meet new people.

The Streetwise Opera group in Newcastle has performed at Sage Gateshead, The Biscuit Factory, Tall Ships Sunderland and other venues and events.

The group performed alongside the Royal Northern Sinfonia in Streetwise Opera’s production Tell Me The Truth About Love at the Sage Gateshead in 2018, to critical acclaim.
