WELCOME TO

discover middlesbrough festival

Whether you’re brand new to all things Middlesbrough or have lived in this town a lifetime - there is always more to find out. And for that reason I’m delighted to introduce the programme for this year’s Discover Middlesbrough Festival 2019. One place I’ve really grown to love is our newly refurbished Town Hall that you can tour as part of this year’s programme. But despite its revamp it is still full of secret nooks and

2019

crannies that would delight any history fan. And did you know that the Town Hall has a resident ghost? Or if you’re feeling active then there’s a park to park walk. Clock up those steps making your way from Stewart Park to the National Trusts’s Ormesby Hall. There’s an absolute array of all things culture too. Did you know that once every week you can meet new friends and share a free lunch after taking in the sights of mima? Or swing by the new kid on

the block, Pineapple Black, and attend its exhibition opening with drinks and music on offer. So hop on board, strap yourself in and choose your destination from this year’s amazing line up. And don’t forget to share with us what you’ve learned.
