When is it?

27th May - 27th October 2019

Where is it?

NE1's Quayside Seaside


NE1’s Quayside Seaside has returned to the banks of the Tyne for the summer!

The Quayside Seaside always signals that summer is on its way and is a key element of summer in the city – for the past few years the beach has been a welcome addition to the city’s summertime events calendar. 


This year we are delighted to welcome Northumbrian Water as the main sponsor for the beach and together we are looking forward to the beach being at the heart of all the summertime events and activities planned for Newcastle and the Quayside.


This year, the pop-up beach returns with all its usual elements; 350 tonnes of sand, 5 candy-striped beach huts, 50 deck chairs, climbing wall and palm trees, as well as a children's play area. Giant outdoor games and additional seating are set to pop up on an adjoining astro-turf area, which will also provide space for street food vendors. This year, no single-use plastic will be sold by the 70m beach.


We love to bring events and activities to the beach and will be working with organisations throughout the city to make full use of this wonderful and well-loved open-air space.


While away an afternoon in the sun, or take your lunch somewhere scenic, however you use it, the Quayside Seaside is a fantastic addition to our wonderful city’s summer offering.
