Great Exhibition of the North

Great Exhibition of the North

Great Exhibition of the North is a free, three-month celebration of the North of England’s pioneering spirit and the impact of our inventors, artists and designers.

Taking place 23 June – 9 September, it’s a chance to show how our innovative spirit has shaped the world.

Visitors to the Exhibition will be able to follow three trails across Newcastle and Gateshead that will showcase live performances, displays of innovation, and new artworks.

Newcastle University is on the route of the Innovation trail, and throughout the 80-day exhibition there will be many opportunities for visitors to engage with world-class art, culture, and innovation created by Newcastle University staff and students.
