NE1


NE1

NE1 was an event that took place from 23-29th July 2006 across the North East of England, and centered at Herrington Country park in Sunderland. The Caption was "One action, one voice". Around 1200 people from mainly the north east, but also many from other parts of the country and even a large party from Texas came to camp for 6 nights. The name is a play on the word "Anyone" and the first letters of 'North East'.

Program

On Sunday July 23, the delegates arrived from around the country. A commissioning service led by Phil Glover, Ken Riley and Jon Burns was the highlight of the evening, with the Bishop of Durham, Tom Wright as a special guest.

The rest of the days were spent by having a Concert in the morning, featuring acts such as YFriday, thebandwithnoname and Dependance , then after that people would go out on busses to their designated projects, and from 2-4 they'd do the afternoon project, such as litter picking or running a children's playscheme.
