Taking place 22 June –9 September across Newcastle and Gateshead, the 80-day exhibition will celebrate great art and culture, design and innovation from across the North. And staff and students from Newcastle University will support the exhibition through a range of events and activities.
Expected to be the biggest event in England this year, the festival will tell the story of the North of England and how its innovators, businesses, artists and designers have shaped our present and are inspiring our future.
Up to three million people are expected to take part in events – including more than one million visitors from across the UK and overseas.
Visitors will begin their journey at one of three iconic venues – Great North Museum, BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and Sage Gateshead – before joining three interconnected trails through 30 world-class venues and public spaces on either side of the River Tyne that celebrate the North’s achievements in art and culture, design, and innovation.
