Our Event Strategy 23/25
Urban Green Newcastle’s first Events Strategy outlines the vision and aims for the events programme over the next three years and the approach that we will take in supporting and managing events in the city’s parks and allotments. It also provides a framework to ensure that the events that we curate, host and support meet Urban Green Newcastle’s wider charitable aims.
Register your event or activity
We really enjoy seeing how many people use our parks to host their own events and activities.
By telling us about how you’re using our parks you’ll be helping us to plan our own activities, making sure we can let you know if we need to restrict access for maintenance work or large scale events.
There are lots of ways to get moving and stay active in our parks.
Our basketball courts are free to use with no need to book, or you can hire one of our grass pitches which are marked for football and rugby.
