Best Pictures: An Oscar Season Chosen By You
Until Monday, February 25, 2019

As we arrive in 2019, it’s that wonderful time again – Oscar Season. The most exciting slot in the cinema calendar, the best new films from around the globe will be battling it out for awards glory over the next two months and Tyneside Cinema are getting in on the action: showcasing some classic award-winners, near misses, and even inviting you to their first ever Live Oscars Party – following this year’s ceremony long into the night.

Skating at Life
Until Sunday, February 24, 2019

Centre for Life’s outdoor ice rink has become a stalwart of the festive landscape in Newcastle, and returns for this year’s holiday season with the perfect space for a spot of wintery fun with friends and family. Open every day until the end of February, Life also hosts special Friday Night, Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve skate events with local, up-and-coming DJs bringing the party to the ice – sounds cool to us.

Centre for Life, Newcastle
Middlesbrough FC v Millwall FC
Until Saturday, January 19, 2019

Near-the-top meets near-the-bottom in this clash, which will see Millwall make the journey up to the Riverside. You’d think the Boro will give their home fans plenty to cheer about in their first home match of the new year, but you never know in football – anything can happen.

John Cooper Clarke
Monday, January 21, 2019

The legendary Mancunian punk poet, who is a spiritual godfather to the likes of Mike Skinner and Plan B, hauls his insatiably laconic wit on tour – promising to educate, enthuse, entertain and inspire his North East audiences when he touches base in Middlesbrough.

Town Hall, Middlesbrough
Burns Night Gourmet Dinner
Friday, January 25, 2019

Celebrating Burns Night with an eight-course gourmet dinner, paired with eight specially selected wines to accompany every dish on the menu, make sure you dress to impress for the Crowne Plaza’s annual black tie formal – which will provide a wealth of entertainment, as well an opportunity to meet the hotel’s Executive Head Chef and Wine expert. Sláinte.

Newcastle United v Manchester City
Tuesday, January 29, 2019

This might be a one to watch through your hands for most Toon fans, but it’s not every day you see the reigning Premier League champions here on Tyneside. And it’s a well-known fact that the Magpies turn out their best performances against the top teams, meaning this match is a must-see for anyone in black and white.

February

Sunderland AFC v AFC Wimbledon
Saturday, February 2, 2019

Near-the-top takes on near-the-bottom in this match up at the Stadium of Light – meaning three points are vital to the future of both teams. The Black Cats will be the favourites going into this fixture, but we all know that means nothing in football.

Superbowl Party
Sunday, February 3, 2019

It’s the biggest night of the year for all NFL fans and, if you’re in the North East, there’s only one place to catch all of the hard-hitting, fast-flowing action of the Superbowl – Shark Club. Promising to be bigger and better than ever this year, with 400 guests expected to party the night away, the Shark Club’s annual Superbowl Party will have food, drink and even a laser lighting show – everything you could possibly need as you’re watching the game unfold.

Shark Club, Newcastle
Premier League Darts
Thursday, February 7, 2019

The opening night of the ten-player tournament – featuring the likes of world number one (and reigning champion) Michael van Gerwen, and the ever-colourful Peter ‘Snakebite' Wright – will be hosted in Newcastle for the second year running, as the top stars in the sport compete head-to-head in a bid to win the coveted trophy.

Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle
Pete Firman
Friday, February 8, 2019

One of the UK’s most celebrated magicians and comedians is set to bring his most astonishing show yet to The Witham this February – promising to mesmerise audiences with his acclaimed blend of laugh-out-loud stand up and jaw-dropping magic, in a truly unique live theatre experience. You should always prepare to be enchanted whenever Pete works his magic.

The Witham, Barnard Castle
Middlesbrough FC v Leeds United
Saturday, February 9, 2019

Two playoff (if not title) contenders face off in this match up, which promises to be a real thriller for fans at the Riverside. It was all square when the sides met back in August, but can Tony Pulis’s men claim the spoils this time around?

Brian Cox
Saturday, February 9, 2019

Having set two Guinness World Record titles with his previous sell-out live UK and Ireland tour, Professor Brian Cox OBE is heading back out on the road with a brand new show for 2019 – taking audiences to the edge of our current understanding about the origin and evolution of the Universe and offering a fascinating insight into the workings of nature at the most fundamental level. Just get ready to have your mind blown.

Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle
Newcastle Eagles v Glasgow Rocks
Friday, February 15, 2019

The most successful team in the BBL’s history will be sure to feel the love from their home fans going into the Valentine’s weekend if they turn out a good performance against northern rivals The Rocks. And they’ve got a chance to – having beaten the Scots the last two times the sides have met.

Eagles Community Arena, Newcastle
South Shields FC v Warrington Town
Saturday, February 16, 2019

These two are neck-and-neck in the table so far this season, with neither of them a stone’s throw away from the top spot. That should mean this is a really entertaining match up, sure to ignite Mariners Park.

Mariners Park, South Shields
An Evening with Sir Michael Parkinson
Monday, February 18, 2019

Celebrating the life and career of a man who has interviewed over 2,000 of the most important cultural figures of the 20th and 21st centuries, this special evening with Sir Michael Parkinson (in conversation with his son, Mike) will also show highlights from the family archive in a unique and intimate evening of entertainment.

Princess Alexandra Auditorium, Yarm

March

Newcastle Falcons v Worcester Warriors
Sunday, March 3, 2019

The Falcons have got a string of away fixtures throughout February, so fans will be glad to see them back where they belong when they return to Kingston Park at the start of March. And with only a handful of points separating them from opponents the Warriors, this match up promises to be a cracker.

Kingston Park Stadium, Newcastle
