About the Event


Newcastle's new Handyside Arcade Alternative is located in the spacious atrium of Newcastle City Library.  The market takes its name from Newcastle's original Handyside Arcade which was located on Percy Street. The arcade was the home of Newcastle's sub cults and was where all the Mods, Suedeheads, Punks, Hippies and Goths would gather on a weekend to hang out.  The arcade was filled with small, independent shops managed by local creatives.  We are trying to create a little bit of that magical time in our new Handyside Arcade Market.  With a fantastic array of stalls selling vintage clothing and accessories, vinyl, art, crafts, alternative clothing, jewellery you will be sampling the best of our North East creatives.  And forget that old image of libraries being stuffy places, we have our resident DJ playing the best of Indie, Mod, Punk, Ska and 60s sounds on vinyl, filling the Atrium with music!  So come along and support you local creatives, we can't wait to see you!
