Town Common in the Beacon Shopping Centre, North Shields

Helix Arts will transform a patch of astroturf in The Beacon Shopping Centre, North Shields - a new ‘town common’ for the residents of North Shields and surrounding areas.

During February half term (17th - 22nd) a series of workshops with artists, performers and community groups will be available for people to drop in from the local community.

Over the week, an ambitious programme of arts, cultural and community activities takes place. Residents will collectively reimagine the role and function of public space in the town centre.

All workshops will be FREE and accessible for a range of different age groups and abilities.
