The Return of Big Events in Newcastle

by Arthur's Place

From seeing nobody, to seeing 2000 people at the O2 Academy Newcastle!

Emma is one of our longest standing Arthur’s Place members. She’s 28 years old, lives in the North East, and was diagnosed with JIA aged four.

When the Covid-19 Pandemic hit, Emma was added to the clinically extremely vulnerable list, along with 3.7million others in England. She went into shielding for the best part of a year, which meant very strict limitations on when and why she could leave her house. This was all due to the medication that she’s on for her arthritis.

After almost a year of shielding for Emma, and three full lockdowns later for the rest of us, we saw the easing of restrictions and the return of big events with high capacities, starting in Liverpool and eventually rolling out to the rest of the UK – including Newcastle!

When Emma made the decision to go to one of these events – a Jax Jones concert at the O2 Academy Newcastle – she took her Arthur’s Place family with her! In the video above, she offers her top tips for feeling safe at a gig, shows us what a large scale event looks like in this new world and reminds us that with planning and precautions there are still ways to do the things we love.

Meet Emma in our Arthur’s of Newcastle WhatsApp group and our other friendly folk too on Arthur’s Place Social, our Facebook Group.
