The region's adopted warship - and the Royal Navy's most technologically advanced warship - HMS Dauntless has docked on Tyneside to visit the region this weekend.
The ship will be open to the public from 10 am to 3 pm on Sunday February 24th - although people are being urged to head down early to avoid long queues.
The public are being given the chance to look around the warship - which measures 152 metres in length and weighs 7300 tonnes - where it is docked at the Northumbrian Quay in North Shields.
If you cannot make it to visit the ship itself, the ship's crew are also taking part in the 'Ship's Company Review' - a parade where members of the crew will march along Ceremonial Way to Newcastle Civic Centre.
The parade is due to start at 11.30 am on Sunday February 24th.
Her Majesty's Royal Marines Band will accompany the ship's crew as they parade through the streets of Newcastle.
