Watch a new documentary on the ‘90s warehouse rave scene in Newcastle

The film charts the scene in and around the area's Ouseburn Valley

A new film about the '90s rave scene in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne has been released.

'The Kick, The Snare, The Hat & A Clap' is an independent film by Susie Davies that looks back to the '90s free party and warehouse scene in the city, with a particular focus on the events that took place on Ouseburn Valley, an area on the eastern part of the city that has seen significant change and gentrification since the turn of the 21st century.

The story of the '90s parties, and the change that has happened in the area since, is told via a series of interviews from those who experienced it all first-hand, including ravers, soundsystem engineers and warehouse breakers. 

You can watch the full film below.

It follows on from another film, unveiled by the BBC last week, which focused on Scotland's rave scene.
