AWAY FROM IT ALL
We cosy up at Millstone Cottage, a lovely Lucker hideaway promising cosy nights…
Dance about at Middlesbrough’s Strictly Tea Dance on Saturday. Grab a partner and boogie to old-school songs, performed live by local bands. Watch pro’s show off their skills, enjoy refreshments and take part in a bottle raffle.
Tynemouth Market is back up and running for 2018. Head there for vintage discoveries for the home, top trinkets and sensational local street food, from to-die-for gyros, to rustic BBQ baps.
WITH THE KIDS
Little ones are invited to embark on a fascinating journey through Wallington’s forests this weekend, discovering the creatures that come to life when the sun goes down.
Escape the January drizzle and head indoors for an adrenaline-pumping adventure at Laser Quest Sunderland. The perfect day out for competitive families – grab your body packs and lasers and prepare for battle!
Taking part in Veganuary this year? Then get yourselves along to cool Gosforth cafe, Greyjoys, for plant-based delights. Try their new vegan sourdough sandwich, vegan breakfast bowl, or go for almond butter and caramelised banana on toast.
This time of year calls for comfort food in cosy spaces. Stop by The Crathorne Arms for hearty roasts by the fire, topped off with the fluffiest Yorkshire puddings and the freshest seasonal veg. Those not opting for vegan eats are in for a treat!
