Work by acclaimed children’s writer David Almond comes to life in a breathtakingly beautiful street art trail through Newcastle’s cultural quarter.

As you’re led through the creative community of the Ouseburn Valley, you’ll discover a series of intriguing works showcasing the talent of artists, designers and makers from across the area.

Admire stunning murals, marvel at new temporary sculptures and engage with artworks that spark curiosity and invite exploration.

This visual and literary treat for the whole family is presented by Seven Stories and curated by artist Kate Drummond.
