Bringing live DJs, delicious drinks, special offers, spin-the-wheel happy hour and more, you won't want to miss this sparkling student soirée. Round up the whole gang and get down to this city centre gem for guaranteed good times in NE1.
FABLES AND THE NATURAL WORLD
The Great North Museum is inviting families to stop by to write their own short moral tales and poems based on local wildlife. During this fun and informal workshop, writer Jenna Clake will use Thomas Bewick's illustrated editions of 'Fables' as a starting point to help you think about how animals, their characteristics and mannerisms can inspire our own writing. Writing materials will be provided, though you are welcome to bring your own!
BOOKER T. JONES
See Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award winner and leader of legendary soul group, Booker T and the MGs, Booker T Jones, at Sage Gateshead. The star is currently working on a new recording project, writing his very own memoir and touring worldwide with his solo band. Watch them show off their stuff in spectacular style.
27 February - 9 March
Nottingham Playhouse and Northern Stage join forces to present Wonderland - a spirited and uplifting drama written by a miner's daughter. Expect dark humour and tension in this 360 degrees look at the events leading up to and during the miner's strike. A real cultural highlight this week!
