Funding cuts to two of the North East's biggest arts venues have been agreed as part of budget cutbacks by Gateshead Council.
The Sage Gateshead and Baltic centre will both lose almost a fifth of the money they receive from the authority.
Overall the cuts will save £30 million over two years and come on top of previous cutbacks of £66 million.
The council will withdraw funding from Bill Quay Community Farm, which now has three months to find other ways to stay open.
The council also hopes that charities or other voluntary groups will come forward to run five libraries across the borough.
