The must visit design event for anyone in Newcastle

Newcastle may not get that much attention from the design world, but times are changing, with the upcoming Design+ event aiming to shine the spotlight on the wealth of the NSW city’s design talent.


The one-day event, held across Islington and Newcastle West, is the perfect place to visit for both architecture and interior design professionals and members of the public. Showcasing the products, services and skills available right on Newcastle’s doorstep, the free event, which is now in its second year, offers workshops, talks, product launches and pop-up food stalls. There’s also free transportation to the event by tram, so you can navigate your way around all of the participating showrooms with ease.

The event kicks off with an opening celebration on Friday 29 August with Pecha Kucha Newcastle presenting a night of talks and food (from El Poco Loco food truck) and cocktails (from Casa de Loco) at Earp Bros Tiles. Tickets are limited so get in quick!

Design+ runs from 10am-to-4pm on Saturday 30 August 2014. Register online now.
