The summer of 2018 is set to be one to remember for the North of England.
We are getting ready to put on an unforgettable show. Everyone is invited and everyone can play a part.
The Exhibition is a three-month celebration of the North of England’s pioneering spirit and the impact of our inventors, artists and designers. It’s a chance to show how our innovative spirit has shaped the world and is building the economy of tomorrow.
England’s biggest event in 2018, it will be packed with amazing exhibits, live performances, displays of innovation, new artworks and magical experiences – and it will be free*. We’ll use the stunning cityscape of NewcastleGateshead as the stage for the whole of the North to demonstrate its talents.
This is a game-changing moment when we will share with each other and the rest of the world just how ingenious, imaginative and inventive our people are. It’s an opportunity to change perceptions of the North and to turn the page on a new chapter of our dramatic story of innovation.
*Almost everything in the programme is free though tickets for some events and activities need to be booked in advance in order to manage capacities, so be sure to check out details on on this website. More details will be announced in early May.
