The route will take runners past famous landmarks of Gateshead including Gateshead Millennium Bridge, Sage Gateshead, BALTIC, Tyne Bridge, Swing Bridge and finishes in the iconic Gateshead International Stadium. Later on in the year, the Great North Run will be taking place once more in September. The world's largest half marathon will welcome over 60,000 runners to take part in the city to sea race. 

The popular late night culture crawl The Late Shows will shine a light on the much loved cultural hubs of Newcastle and Gateshead in May 2024. Culture lovers will rejoice as The Laing Art Gallery has announced that it has been chosen as one of the twelve partner venue locations taking part in National Treasures, twelve displays of loaned paintings, all opening on May 10 2024, the 200th birthday of the National Gallery.

August 2024 will also bring us the delicious delight of the second NE1 Restaurant Week of the year, running 5th - 11th August, serving discounted delicacies at restaurants across Newcastle. 

The festive season in NewcastleGateshead will be jam packed with Christmas markets, events and celebrations old and new. Be dazzled by the return of the spectacular Northern Lights trail in Leazes Park, visit Santa at Life and fill up your stockings with festive shopping at Eldon Square and the Metrocentre.
