The Get North Family Expo is a huge, free event dedicated to kids and feeding their infinite imaginations. A mash-up of interactive activities, it will raise eyebrows, open minds and expand horizons.
A huge gathering of artists, scientists, engineers, makers, inventors and designers will gather in Newcastle United’s Bamburgh Suite with 60 hands-on activities aimed at 7-14 year olds for families to make, do and explore.
Think gadget factories, gaming, comic book making, crafting, coding and 3D printing and you’re on the right lines. There’ll be workshops dedicated to making music and art, upcycling junk, creating robots and all kinds of other fun stuff. Be sure to check into the inflatable planetarium and a museum of the future too.
The fun doesn’t end there. Spilling out onto Strawberry Place, there’ll also be inflatable football and other favourite activities from the popular annual NUFC Family Fun Day. Take the Family Expo challenge and see how many experiences you can tick off.
