The 2016 Northern Design Festival is now well underway, with 8 exhibitions of work by more than 65 designers, makers and architects over 2 floors at the Assembly House – a Grade II* listed building not usually open to the public, only a few minutes walk from Newcastle Central Station – plus another two venues in Newcastle city centre, and a programme of special events and talks.
We were absolutely delighted to welcome our sponsors to judge and present four Awards this year. Congratulations to the winners – you can see (and buy!) their work at the Festival in the Design Event MART and also in our Pop-Up Shop, where prices start from just £2.50.

The 2016 Northern Design Festival Awards were designed and made by RASKL and Nick James.
Tickets are £2.50 for unlimited entry to exhibitions (under 18s free) and the Festival runs until Sunday 16 October. We hope to see you soon!
