Northern Natter

As some of you chuffers keep asking me what I mean by saying I’m Northern, I’ve decided to share a bit about my regional identity with you. Including some of the cool creative bits that we have to offer. If Eurovision can promote regional and cultural identity whilst unifying people yearly… So can I!

‘Northern’ is a multi-layered sub-culture originating from the North of United Kingdom. Northern identity stems from working class culture that has historical significance both past, present, at home & internationally.
