Hack Your NE1 Weekend | 20 - 21 October 2018
YAY FOR THE WEEKEND!
Time for another NE1 weekender packed with all the best bits our city has to offer this autumn.
SATURDAY 20 OCTOBER
Brunch it up
Kickstart your weekend with something comforting at Quay Ingredient. Enjoy eggs and soldiers, traditional fry-ups, Craster kippers, freshly-baked pastries or scrambled eggs with truffle. Go on - treat yourself!
Roll up, roll up!
Head to Discovery Museum to see Circus! Show of Shows - a new exhibition about the life and career of Tyneside’s 19th Century clown and entertainer, Billy Purvis, as well as circus art and memorabilia from the 1770s to the 1950s.
Foodies, get yourselves along to Blackfriars to take part in the Great Geordie Bake Off. You’ll have a go at making North East-inspired breads, pastries, pies and biscuits in front of chef judges and be treated to a tasty lunch.
Get in the Halloween spirit early at Newcastle Castle, where guests will be treated to a chilling screening of Evil Dead II - a horror classic in which a terrified couple, trapped in a creepy cabin, try to survive the night.
The power of pets
Professor Noel Fitzpatrick - also known as The Supervet - brings his first ever live stage show, Welcome to My World, to Metro Radio Arena. Join him on an extraordinary storytelling journey through his life and career.
Make some memories
See Go Away Johnny at Dance City and lose yourself in a blend of dance, theatre and performance, exploring the nature of memory. From Peter Groom, one of the North East’s most interesting theatrical choreographers.
Newcastle's newest immersive theatre clubnight has landed at Digital - and we wouldn't want you to miss it this October! A cultured clubbing journey of live acts, performances, sideshows, music and more!
SUNDAY 21 OCTOBER
Enjoy a relaxing wander along the Newcastle Quayside this Sunday. After a stroll through the market, grab a coffee, take a seat at one of NE1's Relaxation Stations and enjoy the river views. Don’t forget to send your snaps of the city’s iconic riverside charm to us at @newcastlene1!
Take tots to Seven Stories for a musical story adventure - and dance away the morning with a good old boogie! They’ll be free to shake their stuff to some favourite (not so) scary songs in a super sensory session. Perfect for little ones under four.
Calling all cartwheel-ers! Guaranteed to wow audiences of all ages, GymFusion gives guests the chance to show off their skills and talents as a team, in a fun, friendly and non-competitive environment.
Toast to a roast
Pull up a chair at The Forth Hotel for a hearty Sunday lunch. Feast on roast chicken with gingerbread stuffing and pigs in blankets, lamb shoulder in red wine jus, pork loin, or 21-day aged beef. All with homemade gravy and all the trimmings!
Grammy Award-winner, Michael Bolton, returns to the UK for the first time in over two years to perform his greatest hits and a selection of classic songs. He has sold more than 65 million albums and singles worldwide, and he's here to share those songs with a North East audience at Newcastle City Hall this Sunday.
Get your game on!
It might be Sunday, but we're not ready to rest just yet! Gather the gang and get down to Lane7 this weekend for the battle of the bowls. Challenge your chums to a game on the lanes, drop in for Sunday night drinks, or perfect your ping-pong skills. The possibilities are endless - see the week out in style with an activity-fuelled Sunday in NE1!
Catch Lankum - one of the most talked about bands to come out of Ireland in decades - at Sage Gateshead. They’re a Dublin four-piece who mix four-part vocal harmonies with cool arrangements of pipes, accordion, fiddle and guitar.
Enjoy Sunday sips at The Botanist. Cocktails are made with the best flavours greenhouse herbs can offer, mixed and muddled with tasty fruit combos and of-the-moment spirits. Make yours a double and cheers to a great week ahead!
