Submit events for the Great Exhibition of the North's affiliate programme

Towns and cities across the North of England can now join the Great Exhibition of the North, hosted by NewcasteGateshead on 22 June to 9 September 2018, by putting forward events, experiences and performances for the 'Inspired By' programme.

Submissions should be inspired by the exhibition itself, and are welcome from events and performances across the North that are open to the public or the business community and celebrate great art and culture, design, and innovation. Events that meet the criteria will be officially recognised as part of the ‘Inspired by’ programme.

To qualify for 'Inspired By', your event must:

  • takes place in the North of England
  • will happen between 22 June and 9 September 2018
  • help to tell a positive story about the North of England’s role in shaping the present and the future
  • showcase the North’s great art, culture, design or innovation
  • be finalised and ready for public promotion
  • will be open to consumer or business audiences.

All submissions will be checked and approved by the Great Exhibition of the North team. Events are not an official part of the programme until approval is granted.
