Science Central, Newcastle

The North East welcomed the world to Science Central between 26 September and 11 October where thousands of fans were able to enjoy the special atmosphere of RWC 2015.

Newcastle is a city with sport at its heart, so what better way to enjoy the game than to build a mini pitch in the city? Half the size of a full pitch, this state-of-the-art 3G pitch offered players, fans and spectators the opportunity to give touch, tag and pitch-up-and-play a go. A 4,000 capacity marquee provided a weather-proof area for fans to congregate and watch a selection of matches on the big screens. Fans also enjoyed bespoke events such as the amazing Oyster Festival as part of a fun packed programme of events.
