    Saturday 12 May

    Wedding Expo at the Discovery Museum, Newcastle

    Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 4JA

    Newcastle’s Discovery Museum, at Blandford Square, has long been a favourite with visitors keen to learn about the changing story of Tyneside. The Victorian building, formerly the headquarters of the North East Co-operative Wholesale Society, houses an interactive Science Maze and a spectacular vaulted art nouveau Great Hall.

    And, with North East couples following the national trend for quirky wedding venues, the museum is holding a special, free, bridal event on 12 May. Along with the chance to see the Great Hall – which seats up to 350 guests - dressed and decorated for a wedding, visitors will be able to explore the wide range of options available for both ceremonies and receptions.

    They will also be able to discuss their requirements with the team from Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events, which manages weddings at Discovery Museum and meet a wide range of wedding suppliers – from photographers to bridal gown designers.

    Wedding tours will be held throughout the day, and visitors will also be able to enter a prize draw on the day with the chance to win free ceremony hire at The Laing Art Gallery, Great North Museum: Hancock or Discovery Museum. Terms and conditions will apply.
