Whether you're looking for family fun, theatre thrills, music moments, foodie highlights or cultural stuff, we've got you covered with some of this week's best bits in NE1!
MONDAY 24 JUNE - SUNDAY 30 JUNE 2019
RSC: The Taming of the Shrew
Don’t miss Royal Shakespeare Company’s version of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew - an explosive battle of the sexes in an electrically-charged love story, set in 1590. Director Justin Audibert turns this fierce, energetic comedy of gender and materialism on its head to offer a fresh perspective on its portrayal of hierarchy and power. A must-see screening in NE1 this Tuesday!
FOOD & DRINK >>
Greek Wine Dinner
Settle in at Dobson & Parnell for a tempting Greek Wine Dinner in the company of Stellios - a fifth generation winemaker. Founded by Yiannis Boutaris in 1997, a leading figure in the Greek wine industry, the company mixes family traditions with innovative wine-making techniques, resulting in some of the best-tasting wines in the world. The event includes a welcome drink, followed by five courses with five matching wines.
Discover the Laing with your little ones and support their early development in a fun and relaxed way, exploring a different theme each week.
