North East Markets



North East Markets is run by Dawn Hodgkins and Margaret Dunne (NE Markets Ltd) who have extensive project and event management experience in their own right. In 2012, they joined together to form an event management company specialising in North East Markets and Fairs.

North East Markets first ever event was the hugely successful Team Valley Christmas Market in December 2012. With 115 tradersselling high quality food, drink, crafts and gifts, catering, entertainment and of course Santa Claus, the market proved hugely successful with over 25,000 attendees.  The company has since gone on to deliver over 50 events.

A requirement to move from the Team Valley lead North East Markets to Gateshead International Stadium, where we delivered the Gateshead Christmas Village event.  The new venue proved massively successful and North East Markets are looking forward to returning in 2017.

With a large contact base of high quality traders, caterers and entertainers, NE Markets ensure that their events are the best of their kind. We work very closely with local councils and relevant organisations to ensure that every event is delivered safely. Why not see if we could do the same for you?
