The Great Exhibition of the North – are you ready?


The Great Exhibition of the North – are you ready?

You’ve probably heard all about it – one of the largest events to hit the north east is arriving next month, and with it, tonnes of new visitors to the area.

The Great Exhibition of the North is the biggest collection of art and design events in the North of England, spanning over 80 days with over 80million predicted visitors. Unique exhibitions will be held across Newcastle in the locations of The Baltic, The Sage, Great Museum of the North and many more venues; will you be a part of it? It’s an event with a jam-packed schedule for families, couples and individuals that should not be missed.

We’re super excited here at W2W as we’re big advocates of bringing and keeping business in the area so to have something with such great traction to visitors is truly amazing.

Are you travelling to the North East between the 22nd June and the 9th September specifically for the event? Have you booked your accommodation? If not, it’s time. With limited dates and locations available, you really need to get everything booked up.
