Learn about Northern English Accents 

Northern English voice actors or ‘Northerners’ are from the North of England, in the UK. Being based in the UK as a voice actor agency gives us access to the best Northern accents available.

Many brands choose a Northern accent because it's perceived as being more down-to-earth and easy to relate to. Therefore Northern English Voice Actors are quite popular amongst advertisers. Many UK businesses actively seek them out in an assortment of tones.

Give your project that relatable feel, and help it connect with your target demographics in a way that would be more difficult with any other accent. But there isn’t one Northern accent. There is a wide range of regional accents within just a few hundred miles and so choosing the right accent for you can be challenging.
