The Five Best Cultural Events In The North East This Week

Share

The Nutcracker
This week we’re getting into the festive spirit with a classic Christmas ballet, celebrating the North with a musical inspired by the band Lindisfarne, and going behind-the-scenes at one of the finest medieval castles in the North East

22 OCTOBER
CLEAR WHITE LIGHT
Live Theatre, Newcastle
0191 232 1232
www.live.org.uk

This contemporary retelling of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Fall of the House of Usher is inspired by Lindisfarne frontman Alan Hull’s time working at St Nicholas’s Hospital in Gosforth, interweaved with many of the hit songs he wrote during that time. With musical direction by fellow band members Ray Laidlaw and Billy Mitchell, this show is jam-packed with northern talent.

23 OCTOBER
TEESDALE ARTNET OPEN STUDIO
Venues across Teesdale
01833 627359
www.teesdaleartnet.org.uk

Artists, galleries, performance venues and (in some cases) homes across the region will through open their doors this autumn and invite residents and visitors alike to delve into the multidisciplinary work of those locally-based artists who, together, constitute the Teesdale ArtNet. And with workshops and drop-in sessions delivered by these artists throughout the event, there’ll be plenty of opportunities to get your hands dirty. 

24 OCTOBER
THE NUTCRACKER
Middlesbrough Theatre
01642 815181

Prepare to be lost in a magical new world. After a sell-out tour last year, the Russian National Ballet returns to enchant you with the classic charming story of the Nutcracker. The unforgettable story of Marie and her Nutcracker doll is the perfect show to get you in the festive spirit for the run-up to Christmas. 

25 OCTOBER
BEHIND THE SCENES CASTLE TOUR
Raby Castle, Darlington
01833 660202
www.rabycastle.com

For the first time ever, Raby Castle and gardens will be open during autumn, and visitors will be able to enjoy a behind the scenes glimpse into areas that are not usually open to the public. Tours will be held on selected dates between 5th October and 4th November, so wrap up warm and come to hear the fascinating, 600-year history of this magnificent castle, and sneak a peek into rooms that have never been opened before.

26 OCTOBER
THE FEELING
Tyne Theatre and Opera House
0191 243 1171

Following the success of their special (and sell-out) intimate performance at London’s Apollo Theatre earlier this year, soft-rockers The Feeling have decided to hit the road once again – celebrating their million-selling album Twelve Stops And Home with their first tour across the UK in over two years.
