Get Involved

Get Involved banner image

The Great Exhibition is an event belonging to the whole of the North and we’re calling for everyone to get behind it to make it fly. There are countless ways to get involved — in addition to coming along as a visitor to enjoy the show! Here we outline ways to add your support and tell our story.


Along the trails

Businesses and residents along the trails are encouraged to take pride in their part of the trail and help us roll out the red carpet and a world-famous Geordie welcome. Thousands of people will take to the streets over the 80 days. Encourage them into your venues and help us add to their experience through Northern inspired food and drink, decorating your building to fit with the themes of the trails and much more.

Downloadable toolkits

Be proud and help us shout about the Great Exhibition of the North to your clients, visitors, colleagues and friends. We’ve developed a fantastic toolkit for everyone to adopt and show your support on your website, social media platforms, in your venues – in fact anywhere you like! The bolder and bigger the better.
