Great North Nights Wonder and the Wild
Get ready to immerse yourself in the wild wonders of nature and beyond at another exciting Great North Night! This epic event will take you on a journey from the depths of the ocean to the outermost corners of the universe. Sip on a refreshing brew from Stubrew or treat yourself to some pizza and a tasty beverage from our own bar while you explore the museum after hours. It's the perfect way to unwind and indulge your senses.

Join researchers Victoria Fawcett and David Rosario as they take us on an audio adventure through space, giving us a glimpse of the farthest reaches of the universe. Plus, enjoy a classical music accompaniment and breathtaking visuals as you journey through the planets in the planetarium. But that's not all! Local musician and researcher David de la Haye will serenade us with sounds inspired by the underwater world of local aquatic habitats. And, local artist and researcher Marjolaine Ryley will teach you all about organic botanical inks and printing, so you can get creative and take home a one-of-a-kind souvenir. If you're feeling curious, the Cell Detectives from Newcastle University will blow your mind with the microscopic world of nature and the National Institute of Health and Care Research Innovation Observatory (NIHRIO) team will challenge you to complete a fun and interactive museum trail. Plus, the Newcastle University Ecology group will help you explore the fascinating world of insects and the benefits of rewilding and creating space for nature.

And let's not forget the legendary Myth Quest exhibition. Our Keeper of Archaeology Andrew Parkin will reveal the secrets of the artifacts on display, and the Moss Troopers will be on hand to spin mythical tales all evening long. It's an enchanting event not to be missed and the ultimate event for adventurers and thrill-seekers alike. So, book a ticket and get ready for an unforgettable night!
