AWAY FROM IT ALL
Find solitude at Burrell Hill. Nestled in its own private grounds and surrounded by rolling hills, Peak-perfect countryside and soothing lake views, it’s the place to escape to this summer.
Step back in time this weekend at Beamish’s Festival of 50s. Rediscover the fashion, dance to old tunes and live music, watch archive footage from days gone by and enjoy old-school fairground action.
Head to St Mary’s Inn for an intimate look at Trai Anfield’s latest exhibition – The Trophy Room Portraits. See the North East photographer’s powerful wildlife shots of the world’s most endangered species.
WITH THE KIDS
Otterburn Mill Family Fun Day promises kids loads of outdoor action this weekend, including nature trails and birds of prey shows and creepy crawly roadshows. Enjoy BBQs and games, too.
Take them to Preston Park where they can join the Cleveland Carving Club (based in Billingham) to learn all about the art of wood carving here in the North East. Check out their work and try it for yourselves.
The Cumberland Arms Summer Beer & Cider Festival kicks off this weekend. Loads of popular, local brands on offer, so grab some mates and glug away in the sunshine (hopefully, anyway!)
Wynyard Hall’s much-loved Artisan Farmers’ Market returns this Sunday. Pick up gluten-free goodies, freshly-baked breads and pastries, homemade jams and fab craft supplies.
