Stephenson's Engine


George Stephenson

Marty Longstaff, aka 'The Lake Poets', is creating a new piece of music to mark 200 years of the Hetton Colliery Railway.

His work has been commissioned by The Cultural Spring, which aims to increase arts participation in areas of Sunderland and South Tyneside that donít have a tradition of arts engagement. It is funded by Arts Council Englandís Creative People and Places project and its five partners are University of Sunderland, the Customs House (South Shields), Sunderland Music, Arts and Culture (MAC) Trust; Young Asian Voices (YAV) and The Cultural Spring Charity.

Marty has asked Sunderland Male Voice Choir to support him on the new production, which also involves members of Houghton Area Brass Band.
