Fenwick Celebrates 140 Years

Fenwick are celebrating 140 years of inspiring you to join the circus of life with a non-stop parade of events, activities, exclusive product collaborations and pop-ups.

When John James Fenwick opened his store as Mantle Maker and Furrier in 1882 on Northumberland Street, he did so with a commitment to luxury, an uncompromising eye for quality and the passion to serve his clients with the very best he had to offer.

Fenwick is known for providing the finest selection of luxury from around the world across fashion, beauty and lifestyle, curated into a sophisticated shopping space and bestowed with in-store events, treatment rooms, bespoke services and popular restaurants. Loyal to its brilliant and British heritage, Fenwick is proudly the largest family-owned group of department stores in the UK and we are lucky enough to have the flagship store of the family right here in Eldon Square, Newcastle!

Exhibition 140: Elegance & Acrobats: 140 years of fashion and flair

Fenwick’s past, present and future come to life at Exhibition 140. Drawing on their rich 140 years of history, this transporting exhibition invokes their founder John James Fenwick’s visionary ability to attire women for modern life, and his son Arthur Fenwick’s lifelong passion for the daring and dazzle of the circus.

Open all year, explore Exhibition 140 on the First Floor of Fenwick, Newcastle
