*Update!! Due to hugely extreme wet weather on Friday (thanks La Nina!!), we’ve pushed our ‘Wyldings Dinner – Eat or be Eatten!’ back 1 week to Friday, December 3rd. See below for new details!!

Don’t go into the BUSH today!!! The Wyldings are on the loose…

Come join Curious Legends and friends in Wallsend, as we turn our stock of Wyldings loose on the town. Together with Newy with Kids, and Newcastle City Council’s SBR funding, we’re breathing life back into the streets of Wallsend. Roving artists, workshops, giant puppets, and a HUNT transform the shops of Wallsend into an urban playground – the Wyldings are loose… what are you afraid of?

The Hunt
November 22nd – December 3rd
*This originally ended on the 26th of November, however has been extended due to rain

Start your journey at the Wallsend Library to pickup your Wyldings Map, then hunt through the streets of Wallsend to find all our creatures! You can even make your own Wylding, and leave it at the library. Dress up as something fierce for extra fun…

Wyldings Dinner – Eat or be Eaten!!
