Thousands Enjoy The Big M at Toffee Factory

Toffee Factory welcomed a total of 2184 visitors this weekend, as part of The Late Shows cultural crawl. Toffee Factory’s management team, Creative Space brought Isis Arts and their Big M to Ouseburn for the first time and the attendance figures exceeded even their expectations.

Lisa Tolan for Creative Space Management said:

“The Late Shows weekend is always great fun and we were thrilled that people in their thousands chose to brave the elements and visit Toffee Factory and our many Ouseburn neighbours. There was such a buzz around the event – a really lovely atmosphere. It was great to work with Isis Arts on this and host such an inspiring programme.”

The Late Shows is now in its seventh year and this year more than 60 venues were involved across Newcastle and Gateshead.

Bill Griffiths, Senior Manager of Tyne & Wear Archives and Museums, said:

‘It was fantastic to see the Toffee Factory joining The Late Shows again. The lighting made it so welcoming, as did the aroma of sausages and coffee from the courtyard! To see people queuing to get into the Big M to see the artwork inside was just great. I for one cannot wait to see what the Toffee Factory team produce for next year!’

Following the premiere at Toffee Factory, ‘On the Precipice’ will tour in The Big M, visiting a wide range of regional venues, Saltwell Park, The Links, mima, Woodhorn Museum & Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival.

what our clients say

The energy, vision and enthusiasm that Toby and Paul brought to the project within a very challenging timescale were of great importance in helping GYBC secure grants of over £6m to enable works to begin on conversion of the Grade 1 listed St. George’s Chapel. The highly credible outline Business Plan has proved to be a sound basis for developing a viable enterprise, enabling work to commence on site with a high level of confidence.
