Do the Bank Holiday brilliantly, with log-fired pizzas, an old classic in a castle, plenty of cocktails and making the most of Monday

SATURDAY 
Tonight spend your night in the heart of the city, as Newcastle Castle plays host to a screening of Edward Scissorhands. The iconic attraction transforms by night into an inspiring cinema space, so sit back and enjoy this romantic fantasy film, where Johnny Depp stars as Edward Scissorhands, a man with scissors for hands who struggles to fit into suburbia.

SUNDAY DAY 
To celebrate your furry Amigos, Revolucion de Cuba are hosting a Bank Holiday event we couldn’t be happier about, Dogs of De Cuba. So you can enjoy their Havana Good Time offers without leaving out your pooch, they also have treats on hand to ensure they are Havana Good Time too – sounds like the perfect Sunday to us.

MAKE MORE OF MONDAY

This bank holiday, Tyneside Cinema are bringing back some of the greatest films from the past 80 years that have significant anniversaries this year. Today you’ll be able to see Who Framed Roger Rabbit – 13:30, Groundhog Day – 16:15, The Truman Show – 18:00, Lost In Translation – 20:20. The bar cafe there is a hotspot for cocktails and socialising too, so you can kick-back post-movie in true bank-holiday style, with a spritz in hand.

The definitive 30th anniversary tour of Fame The Musical – starring Keith Jack, Mica Paris and Jorgie Porter (of Hollyoaks and Dancing On Ice fame) has all the spellbinding show tunes, jaw-dropping dance routines and general razzmatazz that makes the live production as unforgettable as it’s name, and you can see it tonight at the Alhambra Theatre, Bradford.

Wander the street food market at Durham to pack in the last of your Bank Holiday eating and drinking. At the Full Moon Street Market you’ll find a great selection of street food vendors providing sweet and savoury flavours from around the world, and plenty of tipples too. Adding to the atmosphere, you can enjoy live music on the streets from local musicians.

The 126th Glendale Show takes place on Bank Holiday Monday and promises something for everyone – including your dog. There’ll be the traditional show competitions (broken down into classes) more than 200 different trade stands, and a range of marquees filled to the brim with retailers selling different items – including speciality foods, arts and crafts. But the kids are likely to be most impressed by the falconry shows, the mounted police display or the performance by Paul Swift Precision Driving.
