Travel and Participation Bursaries
The Creative Fuse Conference is free to attend, and we’d like to make it accessible to people on any budget. To make this possible, we have a small number of travel, workshop, and performance bursaries available for participants.
Accommodation and the City
Newcastle has a range of accommodation to suit every budget, from luxury hotels to modern hostels. NewcastleGateshead Initative has produced a useful guide to accommodation in the city.
When booking accommodation, we recommend you do so as soon as possible as the Great Exhibition is predicted to attract lots of visitors to the Newcastle area over the summer months.
Creative Fuse has secured a limited number of rooms at The Sandman Signature Hotel for conference delegates at a preferential rate. To book one of these rooms, see our accommodation section.
