We thought spooky season had finished but there is still something strange afoot on Newcastle’s Northumberland Street.

On Tuesday, November 2 a new installation appeared on the central Tyneside street.

It looked as if a large object had smashed into the road and created a mound of rubble in the process.

Exactly what it is remains to be confirmed, but all signs point towards something festive.

A sign by the installation reads: “Christmas is landing. 04//11/21. #UnexpectedGuest.”

It seems that the people of Newcastle will receive further clarity over what it could possibly be on Thursday, November 4.

Christmas events are starting to take shape around Newcastle, with a Winter Wonderland coming to Newcastle Racecourse and an interactive experience to Tynemouth Park.

This year will still be a little different however, with events such as the in-person Fenwick Christmas window reveal being cancelled.
