Toffee Gets its Wings

June 8, 2018

Great Exhibition of the North is a free, summer-long celebration of the North of England’s pioneering spirit and Toffee are pleased to be a part of it! Featuring on the Winged Tales of the North trail; take a journey through the valley to see new artworks, murals and temporary sculptures created by artists, designers and makers from across the area.

Follow the trail to Seven Stories who will be hosting a fascinating exhibition of David Almond’s work. Bringing to life Almond’s archive and exploring themes of love, loss and hope though characters real and imagined.

Featuring quotes from Almond’s work, Kate Drummond has curated a beautiful trail leading you through the valley and says this about the project – “I’ve loved every minute of working in the Ouseburn Valley on this project – bringing the beautiful, quietly powerful words of David Almond to life within the landscape. It’s really amazing to see all the artworks come to life, and especially lovely to see David’s poem ‘All These Things’ written large across the Newcastle skyline.”

Make sure to have a wander through and give us a wave on your way past!

what our clients say:

"The team at the Toffee Factory do a great job in fuelling a creative work place. They put a lot of effort into what many landlords might consider to be the softer side of working life such as organising exciting food, cultural and leisure events. These things make a big positive difference to creative teams like ours and the other businesses in the building."
