Hack Your NE1 Weekend | 16 - 17 February 2019
WHAT A WEEKEND!
Start half term in style and fill your diaries with fun for the whole family this weekend!
SATURDAY 16 FEBRUARY
Take your little ones along to the Great North Museum’s Scribbles and Sketches workshop, where they’ll be invited to pop along and draw the museum’s collection. A great way to get the creative mind working this weekend!
Settle in for a Saturday morning live-screening from Southbank Centre’s Imagine Children’s Festival in London! Join Jacqueline Wilson, Malorie Blackman and Chris Riddell for a glimpse behind the scenes of ‘The League of Laureates’.
Worked up an appetite? Rest your feet for an afternoon feast at Carluccio’s on Grey Street. Go here for gorgeous pasta dishes, marvellous meats, vibrant veggie options and more!
Make Riverside your Saturday night music spot this Saturday as Hippo Campus take to the stage! The Minnesota four-piece bring fuzz guitars and pumpkin-style melodies to the table.
Music-lovers should make their way to Newcastle’s O2 Academy where two-time Grammy-nominated DJ, producer and EDM legend, Steve Aoki, will be taking to the decks. An unmissable evening of genre-defying electro-house tunes!
More music plans, you say? Hop over the Tyne and take a seat at Sage Gateshead, where Simply Dylan will blow you away. Exploring and celebrating the work of Bob Dylan, John O’Connell and his band are a must-see this Saturday.
Gather your gang, get the Mean Girls memo and make your way to World HQ for a noughties party like no other! Playing everything from Britney and Busted, to Usher and JT. Fetch is happening in NE1 and we wouldn’t want you to miss it!
SUNDAY 17 FEBRUARY
Join adventure tellers, Brooke Conway and Hannah Mathieson at Seven Stories this Sunday for a quest to save ‘The Stolen Dragon’. Can you save the friendly dragon and her eggs, or will we be trapped in an eternal winter forever?
Start Sunday the best way possible with a coffee and a bite to eat at Olive & Bean. Go to this Clayton Street favourite for big hitting brekkies including avo on toast, cheese toasties and waffles!
Calling all yogis
Are you a yogi looking for the next big event in the North East? Make your way to Sage Gateshead this Sunday for the ultimate yoga workshop led by Grace Johnson. You’ll be taken through a full workout accompanied by live acoustic folk vibes. What’s not to love?
Hit the beat!
Love music? Looking for an event in NE1 to inspire the whole family? Join inspiring beatboxer, Bellatrix, for a fun-filled family beatbox workshop at The Cluny! Time to learn some tricks of the trade from one of the best!
Make today a treat day with a visit to Miller & Carter. Rest those legs and tuck in to sumptuous starters, mouthwatering mains and delicious desserts. This Mosley Street steakhouse is the perfect spot to enjoy Sunday supper with loved ones.
Disco disco disco
Get your disco fix this Sunday at Hoochie Coochie’s feel-good DOSA event! Expect an electric mix of disco and nu disco hits, from the 70s until today’s tunes.
Lost Voice Guy
Lee Ridley (aka Lost Voice Guy) is back in the North East for a side-splitting gig at the Tyne Theatre & Opera House. I’m Only In It For The Parking guarantees giggles from start to finish. A comedy must in NE1!
Justin Moorhouse is not certain about anything apart from his uncertainty. He’s starting to feel redundant as a parent and he’s cancelled the family subscription to The Beano. Find out what is changing in the life of the Northern Joker this Sunday at The Stand Comedy Club.
