Based on a concept by Middlesbrough-born producer Katie Gibson and written by John Hoggarth, “Steel and Iron” follows a motley crew of people all from different backgrounds but united by Middlesbrough, and asks: “What happens to a place that is defined by its heritage and industry, when those are taken away from it?”.
Director Jake Smith said: “This is a wonderful story, full of heart and forged in Teesside steel, with some of the most beautiful and anthemic songs I’ve heard for the stage. It’s definitely not to be missed.”
In February 2020 we shot this music video, in association with Linton Pictures, performed by Alistair Griffin. This is a version of our favourite song “Me, I’m from Middlesbrough, Me”. See how many of Middlesbrough’s locations you can spot!
“I want this on the big stage”
“This will put Middlesbrough on the map!”
“The music is beyond beautiful, I could’t help but cry”.
