Monday Digest: What's On In NE1 This Week?
We've got you covered for another great week of fun for the whole family in Newcastle. Whether you're looking for theatre thrills, cultural climate workshops, music moments, kids stuff or foodie highlights, we've got just the thing for you...
MONDAY 11 MARCH - SUNDAY 17 MARCH 2019
OPERA NORTH: THE MAGIC FLUTE
12 & 15 March
Settle in at the Theatre Royal and lose yourself in the story of Opera North: The Magic Flute. The bewitching coming-of-age adventure follows Prince Tamino on his quest to rescue Pamina, daughter of the Queen of the Night, who is held captive by the Priest of the Sun. A tale of growing up, finding your way in the world and learning to love, it brings together dark fantasy, comedy and powerful drama - and all to Mozart’s miraculous music. A feast for the eyes and ears!
FOOD & DRINK >>
Suffering from the Monday blues? Zaap's Curry Monday is just the thing to cheer you up! Grab some mates and enjoy a curry and beer (or a soft drink) for just £10. Go traditional with Thai red or green curry, or spice things up with a massaman or panaeng!
RUSTY: 4D MOTION RIDE
Check in for some science-fuelled fun at the Life Science Centre this week! Take the kids along for a thrilling 4D motion ride with Rusty - the friendly extra-terrestrial robot. He’ll catapult visitors on an exciting journey across Earth’s surface and up into outer space!
