The 2015 Northern Design Festival is officially open! 7 exhibitions of work by more than 50 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.
We were absolutely delighted to welcome award-winning design writer and photographer Barbara Chandler to open this year’s Northern Design Festival and to help present the Awards. Congratulations to the winners – you can see (and buy!) their work at the Festival, along with 13 other designers selected for this year’s Design Event MART.
- Best New Designer, sponsored by Confessions of a Design Geek – Novocastrian
- Best Interior Product, sponsored by Heal’s – Sophie Thompson (Terrarium)
- Most Innovative Product, sponsored by the Northern Design Centre – Jake Barker
The 2015 Northern Design Festival Awards were designed and made by Marc Ross and RASKL.
Tickets are £2.50 for unlimited entry to exhibitions (under 18s free), £11 for a Festival pass (unlimited entry + 2 talks), or £5 per talk. Ticket income contributes to the ongoing restoration work of this historic building. Book online, or pay on the door.
