Free hot-desking & more at Clavering House

Located just behind Central Station, Clavering House Business Centre is the perfect place to hot-desk from or hold a meeting before our Day 1 event begins at The Boiler Shop (just 350ft away) or any other time in the city during Newcastle Startup Week.

With 100MB fibre broadband, Clavering House are offering free hot-desking / co-working throughout the week in their stylish ‘Office Hub‘ which can accommodate up to 15 people at any time. You can just drop in anytime, with no need to book. Just tell the members of staff on reception that you’re there thanks to Newcastle Startup Week.

The team are also providing a special offer on their prestigious NE1 mailing address service. This is usually £25 per month + VAT but you can have this for 6 months at just £15 per month + VAT which is much cheaper than anyone else in the city. It can also be used as a Registered Office address so is ideal for startups.

Free hot-desking at Campus North

Campus North is officially the home of tech and digital startups in the North East and also where Newcastle Startup Week HQ is based. At the times when there aren’t any Newcastle Startup Week events taking place (i.e. Wednesday and Thursday morning), we recommend you use this as your base to catch up on your emails, network with other delegates, startups, freelancers and designers, hold follow up meetings with people you’ve just met during the festival or simply soak up the vibe whilst enjoying one of resident barista Flat Cap Coffee‘s award-winning brews and delicious treats.

If you’d like a more permanent base after Newcastle Startup Week, Campus North are offering 1 month of free co-working (usually £180 per month) if you commit to another 2 months. To take advantage of this offer, please email lynsey.morrow@campusnorth.co.uk with ‘Newcastle Startup Week offer’ in the subject line.

Visit Newcastle Castle

During Newcastle Startup Week, anyone wearing a Newcastle Startup Week wristband will be able to visit the stunning Newcastle Castle for a special discount rate.

Built on the site of the fortress that gave the city its name, the Keep and Black Gate were designed as a form of defence against Scottish invaders. The Castle towers a short distance from Central Station, The Boiler Shop, The Mining Institute and Lit & Phil. Uniquely, the Castle had a railway built through it in the 1840s, when a large section of the site was destroyed in the name of industrial progress.

Adult entry usually costs £6.50 but tickets are available at a special discount rate of £5 for Newcastle Startup Week attendees. Simply show your wristband when buying tickets at the Castle’s Black Gate reception in order to claim this offer.

10% off food at YOLO (You Only Live Once)

Anyone wearing a Newcastle Startup Week wristband (given to ticket holders on arrival) can get 10% off food at the newly-opened YOLO Townhouse bar / restaurant on High Bridge St, anytime during the week (15-19 May)!

This is especially perfect for the gap in between our daytime event @ The Core on Weds 17 (1pm-6pm) & our after party at Motel One Newcastle (8pm-Midnight) which is directly opposite.
