Olive Tree @ New Annual

The Olive Tree Market has been one of the strongest creative industry incubators, and drivers of social, cultural, and economic innovation for Newcastle’s creative community for over 12 years.  COVID-19 in 2020 meant we had to adapt, to think differently about markets in order to create innovative initiatives to support our community in new ways. We were inspired to produce something exciting and new, and developed a virtual platform, which enabled us to develop, grow, and build on our traditional market experience. 

After 12 months of virtual events, Olive Tree is excited to be re-imagined in the physical realm as part of the amazing festival program of The New Annual. 

Discover a curated line-up of emerging and established artists, designers, and makers featuring newly created handmade and designed work. Olive Tree will collaborate to curate an increased program of amazing roving performers, making special guest appearances from the ‘New Annual’ program events, the ‘The Hanger’ will come alive with independent local music acts, installations will activate Civic Park, and make sure you bring your picnic rug to create your own feast from our street food line-up.

We can’t wait to share this new journey with you!
