Diaries at the ready for another fun-filled weekend in our sparkling city!
SATURDAY 23 FEBRUARY
Make Cafe 21 at Fenwick your breakfast stop. Still on your health-kick? Don’t fear! Why not try their fresh fruit salads, or Greek yogurt with berries and homemade granola? Or, for a little weekend indulgence, we hear their cinnamon french toast is delicious!
Tales for tots
Take tots to see Bing Live at the Tyne Theatre & Opera House - a brand new stage show, bringing to life TV’s Bing Bunny and his furry friends, who will be telling stories, dressing up and singing songs.
Northern Ballet's Elves & the Shoemaker stomps on to the big screen at Cineworld as part of its fantastic season of interactive ballets for children, narrated by Anita Rani. With playful characters and spellbinding music, the adorable ballet is sure to have little ones dancing with excitement!
Big band beats
See internationally-acclaimed trombonist, Mark Nightingale, at Sage Gateshead. He’ll be joined on stage by Michael Lamb’s Strictly Smokin’ Big Band and together they’ll perform some of Mark’s own compositions and arrangements. A gig that should be in every jazz fan’s diary!

Don’t miss The Lemon Twigs at Riverside! The brothers will be channeling some of the 70s singer/songwriter energy of their father Ronnie D’Addario, with an upbeat mix of musical theatre performance and lo-fi pop tunes.
SUNDAY 24 FEBRUARY
