Join Curious Arts on Gateshead Quayside for a fantastic weekend of activities in and around Baltic Square.

The Inflatable Church of Love – Queer on the Quay

Baltic Square

Saturday 7 – Sunday 8 July, 11am-5pm

A funky, colourful, inflatable ‘Church of Love’ lands in Baltic Square. Curious knows that love is for everyone so bring your lover, best friend, dog or anyone that you want to commit to a lifetime of love with (or just an afternoon).

Saturday Only – Watch out for our Tea Ladies; Sisters Jean and Morag, ladies of a certain age, will happily invade any public space on their touring tricycle. They won’t hesitate to get interactive with the public and all are invited to their impromptu tea parties. Tea is poured, gossip is dished and there’s always a sponge finger or two to be enjoyed.

Join a host of themed performers, dress up not down, it’s everybody’s big day! P.s these weddings are not legally binding but are guaranteed giggles.

Free – just drop in!


Visibly Drawn – Curious Outdoor Life Drawing
