Introducing The Ouseburn.

We love the Ouseburn Valley. Since making the move to Hoults Yard two years ago we’ve had a lot of fun immersing ourselves in the area and all it has to offer. Whether it’s the music scene, art, food or night life, the Ouseburn excels at providing the unique, interesting and exciting.

We’re therefore delighted to announce the launch of a project we’ve been working on for a little while;

About the project

A couple of months ago we talked about an exciting initiative we were working on in the Ouseburn Valley alongside community interest company (and good friends of ours) Roots & Wings, Carillion-Igloo and URBED. The goal of which was to showcase the best of the Ouseburn to visitors and to enable residents to help shape its future.

The website brings together into one place everything that makes the area Newcastle’s foremost cultural and creative quarter. Food, drink, art, events, music, things to do; it’s all covered.

The listings in the guide focus on unique, independent businesses and events. Exactly the places that we feel make the Ouseburn special.

As it grows, we’re hoping that the guide becomes an invaluable resource to both visitors to the area and to residents. We’ve discovered so many new places that we didn’t even know existed whilst we’ve been working on the project and we hope this will be the case for others too.

What next for Ouseburn?

Over the last twenty years the Ouseburn Valley has undergone a dramatic transformation from post-industrial wasteland to what it is today, helped in large part by a raft of investment and community-led regeneration.

Current developments such as The Malings, Malmo Quay and Lower Steenberg’s Yard represent some of the most significant change to date.

It’s the interaction between past and present that gives the area its energy and charm, and makes it such an exciting place to live, work or play.

With this in mind, we will soon be launching an online portal from which local residents can view, comment on and help shape plans for the area.

Keep an eye on our blog and on our Facebook and Twitter accounts to find out how you can get involved.

For now, though, take a look at If there’s something you think should be listed that isn’t currently, or if you’d like to contribute, get in touch to us know.
