Sage Gateshead celebrates 10 years of performing arts

The Sage Gateshead, a hub for performing arts which has helped transform the banks of the River Tyne, is celebrating its 10th anniversary.

Officially opened in 2004, the £70m building has attracted six million visitors - hosting more than 4,000 performances beneath its "iconic" exterior.

Mark Tewdwr Jones, professor of town planning at Newcastle University, said the Sir Norman Foster-designed building is "loved" by visitors.

A festival of events is being held this week to celebrate its birthday.
