Bin the Blues


Pizza base with smile face in sauce alongside ingredients
Just because it’s blue Monday doesn’t mean your day has to be miserable. Brighten up the day with a fab film or a unique art exhibition, before you throw the diet out the window

Enjoy Great Food For Less
If anything is making you miserable Monday, it is probably that New Year diet you’re trying to stick to. Cheer yourself up with a bit of indulgence at The Roker Hotel in Sunderland. With fantastic food and drink deals at all three of the hotels’ establishments, there’s sure to be something to put a smile on your face. Satisfy those cravings with 50 per cent off food at the Italian Farmhouse, or treat yourself to a slice of cake with a Buy One Get One Free Afternoon Tea in the hotel’s tearoom. Tuck into the extensive menu at the Poetic License Bar, offering everything from a juicy burger to delicious Mexican dishes. With 30 per cent off, how can you resist?

Warm Up With A Hot Chocolate
The winter weather doesn’t have to bring you down: make the most of the dreary outdoors by treating yourself to a fancy hot chocolate with all the trimmings at The Boatyard in Cullercoats. Whipped cream and marshmallows not your kind of topping? Try the coconut syrup and mini Bounty in your hot chocolate for a mix up on a classic drink.

Escape Reality With A Fantastic Film
What’s better than a trip to the cinema on a cold, rainy day? Head to Tyneside Cinema to see the film everyone has been talking about. Darkest Hour is set to scoop its fair share of awards, as it documents Winston Churchill’s first few weeks as Prime Minister in the midst of a world on the brink of war.

Explore The Artwork Of The North East
The New Light Prize exhibition is one of the largest open exhibitions in the country with fantastic prizes and awards to celebrate artists born or based in the North East. Bringing together the best the region has to offer and displayed at one of its most reputable venues: The Bowes Museum in Barnard Castle, this exhibition is sure to light that cultural spark and inspire you for the rest of the week.
