On Saturday 21st October at 8pm-11pm, Juice Festival takes over Great North Museum: Hancock for a one of a kind evening full of live music, performances, a pop-up bar and food alongside a culture crawl around the museum full of immersive, fun, rebellious and empowering creative things to do, see and artists to meet!
Great North Museum plays host to the exciting Our Time line-up which is inspired by Freedom City 2017.
Juice Festival has a dream, a dream that will come true on Saturday 21st October at 8pm. A dream where anything and everything is possible in a museum at night. This is a party by young people in the North East for young people in the North East! This is OUR Time.
Here’s what to expect:
THE FREE UNDERGROUND PRESS

VON TUUR SALON
Enter the Von Tuur Salon for a once in a lifetime show. Put on your 1950s beauty salon hair dryer (or an Onderdomplaas if you’re wanting to get technical) and go on a multisensory experience through the decades with images, smells, sounds, tastes…..
NINETIES READ ALL ABOUT IT TUNNEL
Come inside artist Amy Lord’s Nineties Tunnel to watch an arthouse video celebrating 90’s Newcastle with a show and tell pop up full of 90’s props, costumes and music used to inspire the film.
I HAVE A DREAM LIBRARY
Visual artist Yvette Hawkins invites you into her sound and suitcase filled ‘Dream Library’. Grab a typewriter and type up your dream for the future and add it to the growing and evolving library of dreams.
An interactive film installation exploring equality that will be played throughout the evening.
Inspiring artwork created by a young artist collective from around the World, who now live in Gateshead, around the theme of freedom and what it means to them.
AND MUCH MORE…
The line-up has been curated with some of the region’s young people including Team Juice. Artist Casey Spence said: “I jumped at the chance to work with Team Juice on creating new artwork with inspiring and diverse young people; many have felt voiceless for a long time. I can’t wait to share the brilliant ideas they have for changing the world around us.”
Curious Arts’ Artistic Director Phil Douglas said: “We are so excited so be a part of Our Time, a party night celebrating people! Our Vogue Ball pop-ups will champion self-expression and play with stereotypes in a fabulous way”
