1998

The North

1st Streets of the North
The first and only issue of the National Street Arts Festival published in November reported that the festival hit the north of England, but there appears to be no surviving programme.

The newspaper, however, reported that the festival took place across six locations and that it included a showcase of eight new pieces of work at the Stockton International Riverside Festival. It also said, “there were two co-commissions with the West Yorkshire Playhouse which were presented during the Rhythms of the City festival in Leeds”.
