Opening of Great Exhibition of the North
Friday was the official opening of Great Exhibition of the North and Newcastle and Gateshead were bustling with people enjoying the sunshine and curious about what the festival has in store.
I was at the media call in the morning, and got a sneak preview of the UK's largest water sculpture in action.
Later that night the water sculptures came alive again accompanied by music, poetry, drones, lighting and fireworks.
