AWAY FROM IT ALL
Nab a New York-inspired loft suite at Devonshire Club – a swanky members’ club in the heart of London’s buzzy city centre…
Enjoy hours of berry-picking fun at Brockbushes’ Summer Fayre, topped off with Afternoon Tea in the Farm Shop & Tea Room, plus fun fair rides, bouncy castles, Alpaca walks and face-painting for the kids.
The Bathtub Sessions International Gin Festival arrives at Wylam Brewery tomorrow and Saturday. Swig on small batch bottles, fill your bellies in the street food village and boogie to live, summery tunes.
WITH THE KIDS
Wee ones are invited to Lullabub – a magical dreamland of sleepy byes – at Darlington’s Theatre Hullabaloo. A sweet and peaceful sensory performance, combining music, light, sound, shadow and song, to help transport tots to the land of Nod.
Tyne Bank Brewery’s Baby Social event is back – a weekend must for yummy mummies and their broods. Let the tots take to their mats with toys, while you refuel with cake, coffee and brunchy pies and shop for trendy kids wear.
Feast it up at Low Fell Food Market on Saturday, where local vendors will be serving up indulgent treats. Think American-style cheeseburgers, gourmet hotdogs and mac ’n’ cheese, Cumbrian pies and Northumbrian meats, stone baked pizzas and cheesecake-to-go.
Settle in at Cafe 21 for a spot of Hepple Gin Afternoon Tea. The limited edition offer, in celebration of the Great Exhibition of the North, includes all your usual finger sandwiches, fruit scones and dainty pastries, along with a special gin-infused cocktail.
