What is The Eclipse?
The Eclipse is a red top newspaper that looks and feels like an ordinary tabloid, yet presents ideas and stories in fresh and playful ways. It is light and humorous whilst at same time, investigating issues and going deeper. Through The Eclipse we aim to ask difficult questions, tell the unheard stories and scrutinise the many wider or hidden issues affecting society and each other’s lives as a whole.

Why a Tabloid Newspaper?
We think that information presented in a newspaper format is often more trusted, it reaches into places and gets to people that on-line and broadcast media doesn’t and it gives us an opportunity to go into communities and have conversations, that we usually wouldn’t be able to. We also believe that North East people, desperately need an alternative to what is currently being offered to them by way of mainstream tabloids.
