Hack Your NE1 Weekend | 22-23 July
Yay for the weekend! We've got another action-packed weekend up for grabs in NE1. Are you heading to the Newcastle Pride celebrations? Are you gearing up for a family hoedown? Or are you seeking out an enchanting adventure? We've rounded up some of this weekend's best bits...
Start your Saturday with a bite to eat at Cook House in Ouseburn. Set in an old shipping container, it's a kitchen with a difference - and we love it! The daily changing menu means you'll be able to sample the very best the city has to offer. Expect house granola, sour dough toast and sweet, energy-boosting snacks.
A BIT OF BEANO FUN
Love The Beano? Can't get enough of superheroes? Then be sure to round up the troops and head to Seven Stories for the Comics: Explore and Creative Comic Art exhibition. You'll be inspired by comic art and you'll get the chance to have a go at making some comic strips yourself.
It's time for a fun-filled, Big Family Hoedown at The Sage. It's a cowboy party like no other and it's set to be a rootin' tootin' display. Don your finest denim, pop on your hat and boots and channel your inner cowboy or cowgirl this Saturday!
Be part of the Pride Parade from Newcastle Civic Centre to The Town Moor this year. Round up your pals, pop on your brightest gear and bring the city alive as we parade into the Newcastle Pride 2017 celebrations.
Swing by The Botanist for a fabulous, floral infusion. It's a garden of gorgeous cocktails - our favourites being the gin, strawberry and cucumber watering can to share with friends and the Thai chilli crush for solo drinking. Start your Saturday night in serious style at The Botanist...
FAMILY BLOW OUT
Get ready to go balloon crazy at The Stand Comedy Club this Saturday. Scottish comedian, Chis Henry brings a sensational show the whole family we love. It's chaotic, it's nonsense-packed and it's full of laughs.
Head to the Aveika dance floor as the venue fills up after hours with NE1's Saturday night party-goers. Live DJs play a mixture of lounge, house and popular music into the early hours. Grab a cocktail and strut your stuff as Saturday night comes alive.
Unlock the secrets of the city and spend Sunday morning at Newcastle Castle. Get the chance to walk in the footsteps of those who lived in the shadows of two of the city's most historic buildings: The Black Gate and the Castle Keep. An interesting and educational start to your super Sunday...
Enjoy High Breakfast for two at Cafe Royal this Sunday. For £29.95 you and a chum can enjoy a selection of mini Danish pastries, French toast, granola and all your cooked breakfast favourites.

Make your Sunday morning workout one to remember at Dance City. The Hang Out and Dance workshop invited children (10 yrs +) to enjoy dancing with props and games and also gives them the chance to try their hand at the trapeze and cocoons.
The Life Science Centre welcomes under 7s in for an exciting planetarium show as 'Little Bear Goes North'. Using her knowledge of the stars, Little Bear helps guide a lost polar bear home. A great day out for the whole family.
MEET ME AT THE SPIEGEL
Soak up the atmosphere of the Spiegeltent - part of the Q Festival. Get involved in live activities, challenge your mates to a game of ping pong or simply pop along for a drink or two.
Rest your legs for the afternoon and check in for a Spielberg Special at the Tyneside Cinema. Schindler's List is a deeply moving, profoundly shocking and redemptive Holocaust story. It's a classic, cinematic masterpiece and a must-see if you haven't already. So grab your popcorn and end the weekend with a thought-provoking tale.
Party into Sunday afternoon as the boldest and most colourful event in the social calendar continues on The Town Moor. With X-Factor star Sam Bailey headlining, it's set to be a Sunday party the city should be proud of.
