XR Tyneside

Tyneside XR includes Newcastle, Gateshead, North Tyneside and South Tyneside. The group meets in person on the first Sunday of every month from 12-2pm at the Star and Shadow Cinema, Warwick St, Newcastle upon Tyne NE2 1BB. It’s great to join together to discuss what’s going on in the working groups and plans for local and national actions. Our Group Agreement provides some background on how we run our meetings and let’s you know what you can expect to happen.

There’s also a Zoom call on the third Monday of each month from 7-8:30. Just click here to join the meeting.

Upcoming Events

Sunday 21 January 2024 from 1pm to 3pm at Star and Shadow Cinema, Newcastle:
Welcome to XR with members of the Tyneside XR Integration Team: your chance to find out more about Extinction Rebellion in the local area and ask questions. Feel free to just show up or get in touch with us first via email at xrne.newcastle@protonmail.com

Saturday 27 January 2024 from 1:30pm to 4pm at Star and Shadow Cinema, Newcastle:
Green People’s Assembly where members of any local ‘green’ group are invited to share together how to work together going forward. This follows on from the successful first session in November 2023. Feel free to just show up or get in touch with us first via email at xrne.newcastle@protonmail.com

Tyneside XR is committed to reaching out to as many people as possible through outreach activities, talks and door knocking. The group organises regular banner drops and in 2023, held actions at Barclays and the Glasshouse (formerly the Sage). We’ve joined with the Climate Justice Coalition in supporting the summer Mini Green Festival, the Durham Miners’ Gala and the COP 28 March. Mothers’ Rebellion has raised awareness with Divest Tyne and Wear at South Shields Town Hall and at the Derwentside Immigration Removal Centre at Hassockfield. Although we are a long way from London, we encourage as many people as possible to attend the Rebellions in London by organising transport and accommodation where possible.

If you live or work in Newcastle, Gateshead, North Tyneside and South Tyneside, we’d love to meet you. You can come along to one of our meetings or get in touch with us first via email at xrne.newcastle@protonmail.com
