The Toffee Factory on Newcastle’s Quayside is to turn its 30-metre high chimney into a giant glowstick.
The creative and studio space will be lit up on Friday 18 and Saturday 19 May as part of The Late Shows, Newcastle and Gateshead's after-hours museum event.
Visitors are invited to join the Toffee Factory at their vintage tea party to celebrate as they throw open their doors to the public for the very first time from 7-11pm. Lady Koo and The Kooky Kitchen will provide music and guests can join a short guided tour to find out more about the history and redevelopment of Newcastle's newest creative and digital hub. Entry is free and tours will be on the hour.
Centre manager Lisa Tolan said: "Toffee Factory has amazing lighting and looks stunning at night, so what better time to open to the public for the very first time than joining in Newcastle and Gateshead’s late night culture event."
Toffee Factory provides creative and digital studio space for growing businesses. Its contemporary office spaces opened in December 2011 in the refurbished Maynard's Toffee Factory located at the mouth of the Ouseburn Valley, and is now home to 20 creative businesses.
The Late Shows is one of the UK's largest and most established events as part of the international Museums at Night festival which takes place across Europe.
