Cowgate Illuminations Showcase

Monday 5th November, 4pm – 8.30pm
The Cowgate Centre, Houghton Avenue, Cowgate, Newcastle, NE5 3HY

Cowgate Illuminations is a new commission from Wunderbar   and Newcastle City Council Arts Development Team   that aims to illuminate Cowgate’s local community centre through the design and development of a lighting installation, led by local residents and community groups.

Neon artist Sarah Blood   has been working with a range of groups that use the centre in an exploration of interactive lighting techniques and design. Sarah has inspired the local residents to contribute their ideas to the design of the final installation, which will be the synthesis of these activities.

Bonfire Night Celebrations in Cowgate on Monday 5th November from 4pm – 8.30pm, where we will be featuring the first showcase of work created by the local community. There will be neon and electroluminescent wire installations, neon cupcakes and temporary tattoos and, of course, a fantastic bonfire and fireworks display.
