Newcastle's most slowly, ethically, and beautifully crafted works, wares and talents will be at a 'do' at The Station on December 9th to celebrate 10 years of 'doing' for Renew Newcastle.
The platform will be full of local creative and musical talent. With a food truck menu, cafe and plenty of local brews from our licensed bar. Stay a while and enjoy the spectacular historic space, the harbour views and live tunes all afternoon and evening with plenty of room for the kids to play and enjoy the wide-open spaces of our paved playground.
These are maker stalls with a difference. Renewers past and present will share illustration, sculpture, hand-crafted garments, tarot card readings, photography, painting, book-binding and much more.
