Motown the Musical is Sunderland Empire’s biggie this October. The sensational West End musical is packed with more than 50 power tunes from Berry Gordy’s legendary record label, which went on to churn out hits from Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye and more. Shimmy on down and get lost in the music!
Be inspired by interiors this October as The Enchanted Interior exhibition opens at the Laing Art Gallery in Newcastle. The works explore the sinister implications of a popular theme in nineteenth-century painting: the depiction of the interior as a ‘gilded cage’ in which women are pictured as ornamental objects. A must for those looking for a bit of inspiring autumn culture in the North East.
