Winged Tales of the North

About

A playful and imaginative street art trail inspired by new flash fiction by David Almond – one of the North’s best-loved writers. Created as part of Great Exhibition of the North 2018, an 80-day event which took places across Newcastle and Gateshead during the summer of 2018. This visual and literary treat for the whole family is presented by Seven Stories and curated by artist Kate Drummond. 

As you’re led through the creative community of the Ouseburn Valley, you’ll discover a series of intriguing works showcasing the talent of artists, designers and makers from across the north. Admire stunning murals, marvel at new temporary sculptures and engage with artworks that spark curiosity and invite exploration.

Trail suitable for the whole family. 

Trail starts Glasshouse Bridge and ends at Archway 4, Stepney Bank (pick up a map from Seven Stories)

Opening Times

On display throughout Great Exhibition of the North (22 June 2018 - 31 Dec 2018)
