By now you MUST have heard about NewcastleGateshead’s annual EAT! Festival. Tickets have been flying out the kitchen (!) for a few months now, and we’ve been tweet tweet tweeting about them but don’t fear, there is still plenty going on to get involved in all around the region, including the Eat! Street and the Boiler Shop Steamer – a whole 4 day event (5th – 8th Sept) of Steamer event goodness which sounds like heaven to us here at Epic HQ.
Pop over to The Feather’s Inn English Wine and Cider Festival in Stocksfield (20th – 26th Aug) or grab a tankard and join in a medieval banquet in St. Nicholas Cathedral (24th Aug). Loads of events are happening down at the Speakeasy & Salon in its secret location (you have to solve the riddle to find the hidden door!) including Speakeasy Sunday which is free for you to enjoy live music and great wines (25th Aug).
Or get down to the Gateshead Quays on Sun 26th and marvel at a giant edible map of NewcastleGateshead completed by bakers providing cakes in the shape of their favourite buildings! And you'll even get to eat a bit! Nomnomnom.
You can find the full programme on the NewcastleGateshead website including dates, times, ticket prices and availability. Check it out now.
