Belt out your favourite carols, warm up with a mulled wine, tuck in to a delicious hog roast and mark the start of your Christmas celebrations in Crathorne.
THROUGHOUT THE WEEK
One of the best-loved films in Christmas cinematic history is showing at Tyneside Cinema this Christmas – and we’re adding it to our cultural agendas on the first week of December. The 1940s classic, It’s a Wonderful Life, returns to the big screen and it’s a perfect way to celebrate the festive season with family. Cosy up in the beautiful auditorium and enjoy mince pies and mulled wine while you view an enchanting Christmas screening.
FOR FOOD AND DRINK
It’s officially party season! Gladrags at the ready for feel-good, festive celebrations at Wynyard Hall.
