The iconic TV drama (the first of its kind to be set in the North East) comes home for its stage debut 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.

21 AUGUST
MOSCOW STATE CIRCUS
Town Moor, Newcastle 
0203 375 3970

It’s the greatest show on earth and Tuesday is the last day it’s in town! Promising to have all the nerve-tingling thrills, cirque-style artistry and adrenaline-fuelled stunt action that will keep the whole family on the edges of their seats, this new show from the Moscow State Circus has been designed specifically for the largest Big Top in the UK. So become the ringmaster of your own fate, assemble your troupe and enter the ring – you won’t regret it.

22 AUGUST
UB40
Times Square, Newcastle

Having survived more than 30 years in the industry, UB40 can confidently lay claim to being among Britain’s greatest-ever reggae artists. The Kingston Town and Red, Red Wine crooners will be playing at Newcastle’s Times Square as part of their latest world tour.

Returning to the stage for their first UK tour in over 12 years, the BAFTA Award-winning comedy legends – comprising of Reece Shearsmith, Steve Pemberton, Mark Gatiss and Jeremy Dyson – bring their dark and unhinged fictional village of Royston Vasey to theatres across the country.

24 AUGUST
RITA ORA
Stewart Park, Middlesbrough

One of the UK’s biggest artists of the moment will be headlining the all-new Endeavour Festival at Middlesbrough’s Stewart Park this summer, supported by 2015 X Factor champion Louisa Johnson. After her most recent UK tour sold out in record time, we’re confident that fans of Rita will go Anywhere to see her live.
