Giant surprise at Toffee Factory for the Ouseburn Festival

July 18, 2012

Visitors passing Toffee Factory during the Ouseburn Festival are promised a surreal surprise on Sunday 22nd July.

First popping up to cheer along the Ouseburn Festival parade at 11.30am, these giant guests will also make an appearance at 12.30, 1.30 and 2.30pm for visitors making their way between venues along the new riverside walkway. Lisa Tolan, Toffee Factory Centre
Manager for Creative Space Management said:

“As visitors wind their way along the riverside walkway they will be able to spot Toffee Factory’s five metre high guests, swept ashore to join in the fun at the Ouseburn Festival.”

Toffee Factory is a new space for creative businesses based in an award winning converted sweet factory in Newcastle’s Ouseburn Valley. Toffee Factory is owned by Newcastle City Council and operated by multi-award winning company Creative Space Management. It has recently won 3 RICS awards and 3 RIBA North awards for its redevelopment by Xsite Architecture putting it in the running for the prestigious Stirling Prize.
