AWAY FROM IT ALL
Head to the stables of Northumberland’s historic Brinkburn Estate and discover a stylish getaway for up to seven pals, blessed with rustic charm and serene interiors…
Make Good Friday a great one at Newcastle Racecourse’s Alice’s Wonderland event. Play Crazy Coquet and enjoy Mad Hatter feasts with Afternoon Tea, treats and more at its first ever £250,000 feature race day.
Grab your chums and get yourselves along to Wylam Brewery this weekend for tunes from Newcastle’s finest DJs and beatmakers, local beers and ales and the best in burgers from local patty-flippers.
WITH THE KIDS
Take them to Castle Howard for plenty of Easter-themed fun. Pet furry farmyard friends, take selfies with scarecrows, muck about in the adventure playground and round up the herds in the gardens.
Tots can get crafty all weekend long at The Bowes Museum. Make Easter baskets, cards and bunny-inspired collages, before exploring the museum with mum and dad on a special Easter-themed trail.
Get yourselves along to Wynyard Hall’s artisan Farmers’ Market on Sunday. Indulge in freshly-baked goods, show-stopping cakes and pastries and homemade jams, herbs and more. They’re always fun.
Jesmond’s Food Market is back for April. Fill your bags with tasty local produce – everything from fresh meat and veg to pastries, brownies, cakes and other sweet treats. Plenty of street food, too.
