Homage to The Handyside Arcade: The New Breed. The Edwardian-built arcade on the city’s Percy Street was a spectacular glass-roofed construction housing a range of popular quirky shops and outlets ‘Tyneside’s answer to Carnaby Street’. From the dust of legends, Ampersand Inventions are opening their doors to showcase their amazing boutiques, shops and not forgetting their weird and wonky artists! Mixing heritage, culture, lifelong learning, innovation and enterprise!
As a fellow of the RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce) Ampersand see their mission as to enrich society through ideas and action to amazing new levels.
