Hack Your NE1 Weekend | 12 - 13 January 2019
YAY FOR THE WEEKEND!
We might be two weeks into January, but the fun just keeps on coming in Newcastle!
SATURDAY 12 JANUARY
Wake up, warm up!
Get your caffeine fix at Pret A Manger. The café’s festive menu might be long gone, but there’s still lots of good stuff up for grabs! Wake up and warm up with a spicy chai latte, a hot chocolate or a strong macchiato.
Young creatives and budding actors are invited to Northern Stage’s Open Stages workshop, giving them a chance to meet new friends, share ideas, learn new skills and have lots of fun making a performance.
Discover the stories of the people of Tyneside through Discovery Museum’s Destination Tyneside exhibition. Learn more about our region’s people and the jobs they held - everything from coal mining to shipbuilding and engineering!
Head to Sage to see talented Royal Northern Sinfonia musicians as a wind octet. Expect two familiar and very lovely works by Mozart, mixed in with pieces from modern British composers.
After selling out last year’s event in record time, Transatlantic Bowie returns to Wylam Brewery with the Transatlantic Ensemble. Watch as a team of top-notch London musicians pay homage to one of the greatest artists of all time - David Bowie!
Saturday supper at dAt bAr sounds good! Go for big wood-fired pizzas, comforting bowls of pasta, or plant-powered vegan treats. We love the sweet potato mac ’n’ cheese and the orecchiette pasta with soya milk béchamel sauce, almonds and roasted cauliflower.
Celebrate the life and talents of North East musician, Aran Glover, at The Cluny. The show has been organised by many of the bands and friends Aran admired from the region’s music scene and all funds will go to suicide prevention and mental health charity, If U Care Share Foundation.
