MAKE MY WEEK... | Living North


Don’t let the drizzly weather get you down – brighten up your week with a trip to brand-new micro-bar, an iconic play, a touch of wanderlust and a slice of wood-fired pizza drizzled in truffle oil

If Monday’s got you in the mood to unwind then why not head to The Little Haven where you can enjoy an evening of real ales, craft beers and ciders in this former Post Office. Owner Rebecca has built this micro-bar with relaxation in mind – there’s no music, no TVs and less noise to help you unwind and chill.

All the pizzas at Stable Hearth in Darlington are fired to perfection in a wood-fire pizza oven and are made using sourdough or yeast bases. We recommend you pop in for an evening treat and try The Forager, which is generously topped with wild mushrooms, red onions, truffle oil and rosemary – it’s a pizza that’s packed with flavour.

Join eccentric intrepid traveller, Enoch Pendergast, on his World Adventure at Bradford Industrial Museum. Discover Victorian and Edwardian fascination with exploration and travel through images of faraway places and exotic objects in the exhibition ‘A Yorkshireman’s Travels’. See never-before displayed images from the Bradford Scientific Association lantern slide collection and objects from the Wold Cultures collection, sent back to the UK by local explorers many years ago.

The iconic TV drama When The Boat Comes In (the first of its kind to be set in the North East) comes home for its stage debut at the Custom House in South Shields to celebrate the centenary of the ending of the First World War – with a gritty exploration of the struggles of life during the inter-war years in the mythical Tyneside town of Gallowshield.
