Hack Your NE1 Weekend | 25 January - 26 January 2020
What a weekend!
It's time for another fun- filled weekend in NE1!
SATURDAY 25 JANUARY
Get Saturday underway with a hefty caffeine fix and a delicious brekkie at Quay Ingredient. We can't get enough of their special scrambled egg breakfast feast. Think fluffly scrambled eggs with white truffle oil, toasted brioche and jam. Insanely good!
Animalesque / Art Across Species and Beings at BALTIC brings together a fascinating selection of art forms which challenge human impact on the planet. Join Marcus Coates, Amalia Pica and friends as they discuss their captivating exhibition right here in the Toon!
Head down to St. Vincent on the Quayside for indulgent cheesy delights. Inspired by neighbourhood bars in France and Italy, the food and drink hot-spot offers a wide-range of simple, yet delicious, small plates, alongside high-quality wines. Be sure to try their Robiola Tre Latte - a sumptuous triple milk cheese from Piedmont, Italy!
Time for a pre-gig pint at the Gunner Tavern! Just a stone’s throw away from Central Station, the Gunner has recently been renovated into an uber-cool party hangout and its drinks menu is sure to deliver a knockout blow! Make sure you try the Pink Lane Espresso Martini and one of their marvellous craft ales.
Rock 'n' Roll
Don’t miss Guildford four-piece BlackWaters, as they whistle into the Toon this January. Performing at Think Tank? for one night only, BlackWaters combine elements of melodic indie pop with the in-your-face attitude and brashness of punk rock.
SUNDAY 26 JANUARY
Boogie into breakfast
Embrace the weekend with a groovy brunch date at The Alchemist! Serving between 10am - 2pm every Saturday and Sunday, rally the troops and jive away to disco tunes, dive into dynamite cocktails and get stuck into decadent brunch dining.
One of NE1’s finest record stores will be hosting sensational Scottish alt-rockers, Vukovi! Beyond Vinyl on Westgate Road is inviting music fans across the region to an intimate live acoustic set and album signing this Sunday! A free and unmissable event
for any music-lover!
Beat the chill outside with a wander around the Newcastle Vintage & Street Food Market at the Boiler Shop this Sunday. Spend Sunday sauntering through the stalls from over 40 different traders from around the UK. Expect fashion, accessories, jewellery and a whole lot more!
Time for a roast
Wrap up the weekend in style with a sumptuous Sunday feast at Leila Lily’s. Enjoy two courses starting from just £19, including the likes of BBQ-pickled mackerel and aged, mustard-cured rump beef. The only way to spend a Sunday is with a full belly, right?
Join superstar comedian and North East-native, Chris Ramsey, as he hosts an afternoon of side-splitting comedy at The Stand. Featuring hilarious sketches from the likes of Jason Cook, Carl Hutchinson and Peter Brush, we couldn’t think of a better way to spend Sunday evening!
