These amazing, legendary men and women from the worlds of science, drama, politics, and art have not only established the North as the centre of radical new modes of thought and cultural innovation, but also changed the world with their contributions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Whether it be Turing's creation of the computer or Pankhurst's fight for women’s rights, or the wonderful acting and activism of Maxine Peake and Sir Ian McKellen, these are figures who have, literally, made the world a better place.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Bridging historic and contemporary periods, and continuing to inspire us through their intelligence, passion, and - in the case of the legendary Victoria Wood - keep us smiling with their humour, our Great Northerners are people of whom the region can be truly proud.”
