UPDATE 31/01/13 - PETITION HAND-IN
We were a bit windswept, but it was the Council that were blown away when we gave them 13,000 signatures in support of Newcastle City Hall.
Those within range, can tune in to Tyne Tees TV's 'North East Tonight' at 6 pm this evening (31st January) for a full report. A shorter report appeared on the lunchtime news, which can be viewed here: http://www.itv.com/news/tyne-tees/story/2013-01-31/save-the-city-hall-campaign/
Thanks to all who have signed and shared the petition, which remains open. The petition will also be formally submitted to a full council meeting in the Council chamber next week.
With best wishes and fingers crossed for a positive future for Newcastle City Hall,
North East Music History
