Natasha Vall considers how new post-war cultural institutions, such as the regional arts boards and local broadcasting, presented challenges to the hegemony of vernacular traditions in north-eastern England, which metropolitan officials considered a 'cultural desert'. She also discusses the part played by new galleries, music venues and theatres in urban riversides' renewal, focusing on Gateshead, which was long overshadowed by Newcastle but by the end of the millennium was widely acknowledged as a successful culture-led regeneration.
