YAY FOR THE WEEKEND!
Follow our guide to another great weekend in NE1!
SATURDAY 6 JULY
Rise and shine
Throw some flour around and make freshly-baked delights at Blackfriars’ Artisan Bread Making class. The restaurant’s master bakers will be sharing their tips and tricks on how to create the perfectly-risen, hand-kneaded loaf, using locally-milled, stone-ground flours.
Shop 'til you drop
Head to intu Eldon Square and shop the summer sales! Whether you’re putting together a brand new holiday wardrobe or just looking for a few new additions for the season ahead, you’re bound to find tons of great buys from some of the biggest names in fashion.
Feeling peckish? Then why not stop by Grey’s Quarter and enjoy a carb-fest at Pizza Storm! Choose from over 50 toppings and enjoy your very own, hand-stretched creation, paired with delicious sides like mac ’n’ cheese, loaded wedges and garlic bread bites
Don’t miss Razzamataz Newcastle Presents: It’s Razz Y’all at Tyne Theatre & Opera House. With excerpts from High School Musical, Legally Blonde, Hairspray and School of Rock, lots of pop singing and commercial dance, it promises a real celebration of Broadway and America!
Wrestle up some fun
Don’t miss Progress Wrestling - Chapter 91: Prog on the Tyne at 02 Academy. A unique blend of strong-style, punk-rock pro wrestling, the show promises a night of action-packed entertainment for the whole family.
Stripped down sound
Following the release of her first multi-disc set, showcasing 30 of her greatest songs alongside rare material, Joan As Police arrives at Sage Gateshead with a show to remember. Stripping her sound down to its true essence, she’ll be performing her songbook and a selection of covers solo with just piano and guitar.
Go go Vogue
This year’s Curious Vogue Ball is back and it’s bigger and better than ever! Taking place at Dance City, it’s the ultimate celebration of the North East’s LGBTQ+ and vogue culture. Time to get fabulous!
SUNDAY 7 JULY
Tuck into a spot of lazy, Sunday-style breakfast at Cafe 21 at Fenwick. Think buttery croissants, homemade granola with yogurt, blueberry muffins and cinnamon French toast.
Get your history and heritage fix in NE1 this weekend with a tour of the Victoria Tunnel - a restored 19th century waggonway beneath the city from the Town Moor to the Tyne. Find out what life was like during WW2 and hear some untold tales of Newcastle!
Take tots to Seven Stories where they can celebrate Elmer’s Special ‘Drag’ Strut - a special story time and craft session featuring an appearance from hilarious drag duo, Ben & Gladys. Make your own head dress or mask and proudly strut your stuff down the jungle catwalk!
Art with humour
Drawing on archetypes of ‘the artist’, Mick Peter creates a brand new installation at BALTIC. To Me, To You shines a light on artwork that uses humour to uncover the obscurities around the making of sculpture - particularly within a gallery context.
Wind down with tipples at Pitcher & Piano. Grab some pals and kick-back in the chilled-out bar, which boasts amazing river views. The perfect spot for enjoying all your favourite cocktails, or even a bottle of bubbly!
