Conversion Festival Newcastle

Conversion Festival, a new three day cultural event, lands in Newcastle City Centre in October, to coincide with the Rugby World Cup 2015.

On all Rugby World Cup 2015 match days (October 3, 9 and 10) in Newcastle, tens of thousands of visitors and locals will be able to enjoy live music, street entertainment and a food and drink market around the city centre and St James’ Park, before, during and after games. The entertainment will reflect the visiting nations, New Zealand, South Africa, Tonga, Samoa and Scotland.

The festivities kick off with special welcome events in and around Newcastle City Centre, as well as the opening of the EAT! Street Food Market; 40 local street food traders offering a variety of food and drinks in Newcastle City Centre until Sunday 11th October.

Leader of Newcastle City Council, Councillor Nick Forbes, adds: “We are planning to celebrate our Rugby World Cup games and welcome visitors from across the world by throwing a party that has something for everyone. It doesn’t matter whether you are a rugby fan or not – the city will have a real buzz at tournament time.

“You can enjoy the Fanzone at Science Central or join in the fun across the city centre – we want everyone to enjoy the big tournament atmosphere and make sure our visitors leave Newcastle with great memories, regardless of whether their team wins or loses.”

Conversion Festival is funded by Arts Council England, produced by NewcastleGateshead Initiative and developed and delivered in partnership with Newcastle City Council.
