Take part in guided tours, talks and family-friendly activities; discover the urban home of the iconic landmark here in Newcastle at museums like Segedunum and Great North Museum: Hancock before heading out into the glorious Northumberland countryside to walk beside Hadrian's Wall and join communities who live there for a festival of events.

Between Saturday 29 January and Sunday 3 April, go in search of twenty iconic Morph sculptures dotted around the coastal towns and local high streets of North Tyneside. Morph's Epic Art Trail is a great chance to get the kids out and about whilst trying to tick off all the individually-designed Morphs on this outdoor trail.

Explore the mystery of Under the Stars in February and March. The new free event series, which will run over three weekends and culminate in a spectacular four-night festival finale, will bring magic to visitors of all ages at locations across the region and end in Newcastle City Centre. North of the Tyne, Under the Stars will weave a new fable for the region and explore local storytelling with the help of spectacular, large scale projection, atmospheric imagery, sound and fire to capture the character, beauty and diversity of this region. With events taking place throughout the neighbourhoods of Newcastle, Northumberland and North Tyneside - get ready to ignite your imagination this winter.

Explore themes that are present in the Gospels including light, spirituality, community, pilgrimage, art and history.
