Last year we commissioned stand up poet, broadcaster and first ever Great North Run Poet in Residence Kate Fox to make a new show for families. This week The Starting Line makes its London debut as part of the Imagine children’s festival at the Southbank Centre in London.

2012 was a big year for us here at Great North Run Culture. We’re incredibly proud of our programme which included new commissions from Mark Wallinger, Douglas Gordon, Dan Holdsworth, Kate Fox and Reuben Henry & Karin Kihlberg.

We want to say a huge thanks to the 663,000 of you who saw our exhibitions and came to our programme of events, workshops, family activities and artist talks.

I’ve written a new interactive family show based on my experience of being Great North Run Poet in Residence last year. I went along to the parkrun in Newcastle recently to chat to family runners about running and writing.
