NE1 Partnership Flash Back

It was great to partner with NE1 to provide entertainment for Blackett Street.

Blackett Street in Newcastle was unrecognisable over various weekends of the summer – 6 of these weekends will see the street transformed by NE1 from a busy bus route into a pedestrian only, family park and playground, equipped with artificial grass, seating, fairground rides and large outdoor games.

NE1 Ltd have devised the Blackett Street programme as part of its on-going commitment to greening the city and delivering a family focused summer events programme, especially during the school holidays.  Blackett Street was an obvious target for the summer time activity during the Great Exhibition of the North as it is central to Newcastle’s bustling retail and leisure district and for 10 weekends will be closed to vehicles, to create a fun environment in the heart of the city centre for family days out.
