Where is This is Tomorrow in Newcastle? How to get to festival as it returns for 2021

By Simon Duke

After a two year hiatus, This is Tomorrow will make its return to Newcastle this week with a stellar line-up across four days of live music.

It was back at the end of May 2019 that acts including Foals, Noel Gallagher and Lewis Capaldi entertained Geordie crowds with Oasis classics and Lewis' massive number 1 Someone You Loved provided mass sing along moments over the course of this weekend.

The curtain raiser for this year's This is Tomorrow will be a special concert in support of the NHS on Thursday, September 14.

This is for The NHS will be headlined by James and expect a chorus or two of football anthem Three Lions as Lightning Seeds are also on the bill along with Gateshead soul diva Beth Macari.

Friday's festival will be headlined by Dermot Kennedy, before Gerry Cinnamon does the honours on Saturday and the event is wrapped up by local lad Sam Fender on Sunday.

Where is This is Tomorrow in Newcastle?

Like it did in 2019, This is Tomorrow will take place at Exhibition Park, right near the city centre. The full address is Exhibition Park,

Claremont Road, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE2 4PZ.

How to get there

Exhibition Park is a short walk up from Haymarket Metro Station.

If you are getting to Newcastle by train for the festival, Exhibition Park is about a half hour's walk from Central Station or you can get the two stops from Central to Haymarket and walk from there.

If you're going by car, there will be no parking on site but there are car parks nearby on Claremont Road, as well as in and around St James' Park and Old Eldon Garden.

If you walk keep a look out for the RVI hospital as a useful landmark, as that is only a few minutes walk from the park.

At the end of the festival, there is likely to be taxis lined up at the rank outside the main entrance if that's how you decide to get home.
