Have your say

A new lease of life has been given to a former pub after being transformed into an arts, crafts and antiques hub.

Artique @ The Marina, in Amble, was officially opened on Saturday.

The venue, which also has a cafe, has attracted nearly 30 stallholders, selling items such as toys, jewellery, scented candles, painted furniture and more. The majority of traders come from north Northumberland.

The new centre is the brainchild of Warkworth resident Pauline Robertson and it has transformed the former Marina Arms pub, on The Wynd, which had been closed for a while.

Artique is open Monday to Saturday, 10am to 5pm, and Sundays, noon to 4pm.
