Blackett Street Family Fun Weekends

Blackett Street Family Fun Weekends NE1 Newcastle upon Tyne

A major new addition to NE1’s Summer in the City programme, the Blackett Street Family Fun Weekends are returning this summer: transforming the area into a pedestrian priority, family park and playground, equipped with artificial grass, seating, fairground rides and large outdoor games for families to enjoy.

To create a park-like feel, artificial grass will be laid over 1000sqm of road from Old Eldon Square to Pilgrim Street for seven summer weekends and a range of outdoor seating including large beanbags, mini deck chairs and an artificial grass sofa will encourage families and shoppers to rest their legs and enjoy.
