Bigg Market Heritage

The Bigg Market was Newcastle's original market district, and while it has changed drastically since the medieval period it has remained a lively hub of the city's nightlife. These resources are available for free download and are designed to help teachers of Key Stage 1 or 2 children to start to explore their local history through the colourful characters of the Bigg Market. The teacher's packs contain information, pictures and suggestions for lessons and activities, while the resouerce pack contains a selection of old photographs of the Bigg Market. 

Use these resources in conjunction with a visit to the Bigg Market itself led by the Castle's education team.
