DATE: Friday 14th May

VENUE: Scott’s Cafe, Forum Cinema, Hexham


Following on from the 2009 work by MA Urban Design Students from the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne, we have undertaken a similar event this year.

From autumn 2009 MA urban design students have been engaged in a theoretical project to come up with solutions to the bus station site on Priestpopple.  While we understand that things may have shifted slightly since we helped set their brief – e.g. possible retention of a bus station within the Priestpopple area rather than the original relocation to Loosing Hill – the students have now completed their work and have generated some fabulous ideas about how to make best use of this key Hexham site.

The exhibition of student’s work and their models will commence 14th May and run until the 21st.  On Friday 14th May we will be hosting our AGM at 1:30, to be followed by a presentation of student’s work by Georgia Giannopoulou, Newcastle University’s Degree Programme Director at 2:30. FREE EVENT – ALL WELCOME

The exhibition will continue to be available to view in the cafe until the 21st May.

Please come to this week-long event and engage in debate about the future of our town.
