Proudly British and serving the promise of no fuss, this spot will deliver with honest food and friendly company. Indulge in potted shrimps or crab on toast to start or head straight for mains and tuck into classics like fish pie or the ‘Friday’s fish and chips’ special. Wash it all down with a pint of the good stuff!
Eat-a-long Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory
Celebrate Easter in the tastiest way possible with a chocolate-fuelled screening of Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory at Tyneside Cinema. Check in for an eat-a-long screening featuring scrumfifflyumptious treats to be enjoyed during the film. We’re in!
Easter Sunday Special with The Magnificent Jazzy Jeff
It wouldn’t be a bank holiday weekend without an egg-citing new Sunday special at Wylam! Join Jazzy Jeff for an equally jazzy set of soul, Motown, disco, old skool and R&B party bombs! Enjoy the beat and move your feet this Easter weekend.
LOCKER ROOM TALK
9 - 13 April
Make your way to Newcastle’s Live Theatre this week for your mid-week culture fix as Locker Room Talk takes to the stage for two nights only. This provocative piece of event theatre presents a rehearsed reading of script which demands to be heard. In the wake of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, this show is an urgent response to everyday misogyny. See it live in NE1 this Wednesday and Thursday - each performance followed by a free post-show discussion with experts in equality and gender studies.
