Newbie is set to explore the UK this summer as we embark on a two-month journey across the country!  Newbie is travelling the UK in a Newbie designed air-stream.  The two-month tour includes free to attend events that nod to our Swedish heritage, as well as providing classic family fun and activities. From traditional Swedish lawn games and fika, to face painting, flower crown making and sing-and-sign classes, we’re welcoming the whole family to join us and enjoy what’s on offer.
