Make My Weekend...

Oh what a wonderful weekend we have in store for you with must-see shows, sand between your toes and lots of lovely flowers to find

If you fancy yourself as a bit of a gin guru or beer buff, then check out the latest addition to Yorkshire’s bar scene: Granville’s Beer and Gin House. They’re already making a name for themselves with a focus on cool, unusual and hard-to-find drinks. With 15 beers on tap (including a range of cask ales) from local and international brewers, as well as a stellar variety of small batch, boutique gins that you won’t find in most other bars. Fancy trying Spit-roasted Pineapple Gin? How about a pint of Bear Island black lager? Granville’s has got you covered.

There is only one way to start your Saturday: brunch. Sheffield’s Tamper Coffee serves up classic brunch dishes with a New Zealand culinary twist. If their eggs Benedict, with a side of bubble and squeak, isn’t up your street, The Big Kiwi breakfast is sure to sate your appetite. Two eggs to your liking, bubble and squeak, mushrooms, corn on the cop, sausage, beans, bacon and fresh ciabatta — a breakfast fit for a Maori.

For any fans of the film Made In Dagenham, starring Sally Hawkins and Bob Hoskins, the stage version at The Maltings theatre in Berwick is a must-see. ‘Rights, not privileges. It's that easy.’ Wise words Rita O’Grady, wise words…

Feel the sand between your toes and enjoy the freshest fish and chips possible without making your way to the coast at The Little Fishy, which has taken up residence on Newcastle’s Quayside this summer. The gloriously fresh fish beneath the crispiest breadcrumbs can rival any coastal restaurant, and you can follow up with a walk along the banks of the Tyne after. Don’t do fish? The halloumi fries will have you raving for days.

Get ready for the North’s most exciting horticulture celebration of the year at Harrogate’s Spring Flower Show – where you can admire the most colourful and creative floral displays inspired by a unique topsy turvy, inside out theme. The best part – you get to meet some of the lovely Living North team at our stand at GH5, where you can pick up a copy of our latest Yorkshire Magazine.
