MAKE MY WEEKEND... | Living North



From a big night out with the Newcastle Falcons to cocktails galore, we’ve got everything you need to make the most out of the weekend

Gear up for the Newcastle Falcons’ ‘Big Night Ooot’ with their nail-biting match against Bath this Friday night. The Falcons are aiming to extend their Kingston Park unbeaten streak to four games when they play in the Gallagher Premiership. The 7.45pm kick-off has been billed as the 'Big Night Ooot’, as Kingston Park's Friday night atmosphere and Living North’s fabulous marquee are sure to get you in a festive, sporting mood.

The historical spa town of Harrogate also possesses one of the most vibrant independent food scenes in the UK. This Saturday, why not tantalise your tastebuds with a walk around the town,  sampling some delicious food and drink? With stops including Hales Bar, the oldest pub in Harrogate, and Farrah’s of Harrogate, home of the Original Harrogate Toffee, it’s sure to delight all foodies.

Continuing to make UK chart history with her seventh number one single I’ll Be There earlier this year, singing superstar Jess Glynne will be bringing her critically-acclaimed new album to the stage in a massive UK arena tour – stopping off (of course) at Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena along the way. We know there’s no place we’d Rather Be.

Ouseburn Valley is Newcastle's new creative hub, and over this weekend it's opening its doors to offer you the unique opportunity to glimpse the working world of over 200 artists and designer-makers. Get some Christmas shopping done with a huge array of ceramics, art, jewellery on offer, and enjoy live music, delicious food, and interactive workshops.

Cap your weekend off in style with the Sunday Cocktail Club at Voodoo Café in Darlington. Be wowed by the musical talents of folk singer Steve Pledger, before settling down for whisky and some of Voodoo Café’s award-winning cocktails as the evening progresses. Ours will be a Piña colada, please.
