On July 16th 2022, the Reflections Team had their summer event at the Ouseburn, a hub for creativity history, music and more.
The day was packed with activity and there was something for everyone to get involved in.
The farm offered guinea pig and rabbit petting sessions, a farmer’s club, reptile bathing and a tour around the farm.
There were also letterpress printing workshops at Northern Print where the team had the chance to compose and print their own artwork with moveable metal type blocks.
The Seven Stories exhibition was also open to explore, with original artworks, draft manuscripts and exhibitions to be seen. There was also an exclusive Ubisoft storytelling performance sessions, Oh no, George!, for our team to enjoy. The museum also had a creative workshop to design and make a character using a range of materials too.
The Ouseburn Trust also offered two different tours, above and below ground! The first, to the Victoria Tunnel, a preserved 19th century wagonway under Newcastle, originally used to transport coal, and later, converted to an air-raid shelter during WWII.
The second tour was Back to the Future. The tour was an exploration of the history of the area and future plans and regeneration.
The team had a blast at the Ouseburn, take a look at some pictures from the day!
