cl copeThere are faeries in this town. You may not have met them yet, but we all know they are there. The King of the faeries, is grumpy and hard to please and he is paying Newton Aycliffe a visit. The faeries are busy making preparations ready for his arrival and they need our help.







cl holidaysThe King of the faeries wants to see the best of Newton Aycliffe. He wants to know the places you love. Secret places only we know. Places where we meet our friends and laugh. If we can make him smile then, with one wave of his magic pitchfork, he will bless this town with a gift. At 6pm on 15th July at West Park, to be precise. So there.

Come along and show the King of the faeries the places in Newton Aycliffe we love. Go on; put a smile on an old faery’s face!
