Monday 13th May 2019 @ The Boiler Shop, Stephenson Quarter (11am-6pm)
Our Newcastle Startup Week festival officially begins with a celebration of local business success stories of the past, present & future at Robert Stephenson & Co’s beautifully refurbished Boiler Shop venue directly behind Central Station.
As the world’s first purpose-built locomotive factory (which powered the railway industry & industrial revolution in the early 19th century), it’s the perfect venue to showcase the new entrepreneurial revolution taking place right now in the North East of England!
