We're hosting a summer programme of activities and events in our contemporary bandstand under the Ouseburn Railway Viaduct, on the site of the Culvert entrance (both amazing design achievements of their time). It has been designed by the winners of the CONSTRUCT competition for architecture students at Newcastle and Northumbria Universities.

These are the events currently planned for the 80 days of the Great Exhibition of the North between 22 June and 9 September:

Sunday 8 July         Ouseburn Festival

Sunday 26 August   Ouseburn Valley Cross

If you would like to use the bandstand please get in touch here. We are open to all sorts of uses from exhibitions to picnics to performances.

The Trust will provide property owners liability cover for the structure and the land where the bandstand is located.  Any exhibitors/performers will be required to obtain insurance and licenses such as entertainment/markets for their own activities from the City Council.
