Bede & Beijing

We’ve just helped Tyne and Wear Museums launch Bede & Beijing by creating a range of marketing materials. Part of the East 08 event Bede & Beijing is a festival exploring the links between Anglo Saxon Northumbria and Chinese culture across the region. The festival programme features music, art installations and exhibitions including rare early Anglo-Saxon manuscripts from the British Library and an extraordinary Chinese carved ivory garden from the V&A. Work by leading Chinese artists will also be displayed at the six unique and historic venues. All venues are partners in the Wearmouth Jarrow Candidate World Heritage Site bid, together with Sunderland City Council, South Tyneside Council, English Heritage and One NorthEast.
