Culture has featured high on the urban development and regeneration agendas across Europe over the past few decades. In particular, large-scale projects and events / festivals have fared well under the auspices of a policy devoting large shares of public and - in British case - lottery money to urban renewal. This paper deals with these trends in the context of the British experience. Taking Newcastle / Gateshead as an example it illustrates the dramatic changes that some places have undergone due to the twin forces of economic restructuring and culture-led regeneration. The analysis of the experiences of these North-East towns takes into account recent social trends and considers the problems inherent in such an approach to urban renewal. - (IfL)
