Northern Steel Orchestra has launched its 2016 season, thanks to funding from two local charities, the Readman Family Grassroots Fund and the Freemasons of Northumberland.

A new charity, Northern Steel Network, has been formed to support steel pan and has taken on the running of the orchestra.

The funding will enable the charity to run a full programme of activities, including workshops and a steel pan festival in North Shields on June 24.
