We welcome the NEWCASTLE WEEKLY as a proud sponsor and supporter of all of the Hunter creative and performing arts programs. 

They are a unique product for a unique region. Since launching in May 2015, the Newcastle Weekly has become the Hunter’s most-read news and lifestyle publication, with its trusted, community-focused editorial serving the people of Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Maitland, Cessnock and Port Stephens. Their talented team prides itself on connecting with readers in a diverse range of subjects: news, current affairs, sport, politics, local events, arts, entertainment, food, fashion and beauty, home and lifestyle, and real estate.
