Ouseburn Festival returns Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th July 2024. We’re bringing you a weekend of free live music, art, performances, family activities, and much more.

The full programme – with performance times and venue specifics – will be available to view/download one week before Ouseburn Festival. Check back here weekly to read about the events planned throughout the weekend – updates every Friday!

'Down By The River'

The theme for Ouseburn Festival 2024 celebrates the Ouseburn River. The Ouseburn flows a significant distance, from Callerton near Newcastle airport, through Jesmond Dene and the Ouseburn Valley, before joining the River Tyne. Along its path, it has a huge impact on people and wildlife alike.

At this year’s Ouseburn Festival, you’ll be invited to interact with events, activities, and people that help you think about the river and its impact in our community.
