STACK and Hadrian’s Tipi to return to Newcastle

A plan to bring STACK back to Newcastle for one year has been submitted to Newcastle City Council.

If the scheme is given the green light to occupy the site in the Stephenson Quarter behind Central Station and next to the Crown Plaza Hotel, the people behind the project hope to have it up and running in time for Christmas. If given the go-ahead, the site will also be home to Hadrian’s Tipi over the festive season – a mainstay of Newcastle’s Christmas programme in recent years.

The temporary scheme will see the creation of a number of shipping container bars, a double tipi, street food vans, a stage and large screen, all on one level.

Neill Winch, CEO of Danieli Group which owns STACK Newcastle, believes the scheme will be well received.

“We were overwhelmed by the emotional response our customers shared about their sadness at the closure of STACK Newcastle in May, so we are very excited to be able to announce our plans, which we hope will mean its return just in time to celebrate Christmas,” he said.

“Our customers have been very vocal in letting us know that they would be delighted to see STACK come back sooner rather than later, which is why we have taken this opportunity to open a temporary scheme.

“Plans are underway for a more permanent scheme and we aim to release further details in the coming weeks, but in the meantime hope this news will be well received by our customers.”

If successful, the pop-up STACK and tipi will front Forth Street at the north of a site being developed through a partnership between Newcastle City Council and PfP-igloo.
