What's on for families in the North East - weekend 28/2/14

Who has star envy after seeing all the amazing pictures of the Aurora last night? I certainly have! The same sight's cannot be guaranteed but there is a stargazing event at Souter lighthouse on Saturday 1st March 6:30pm-11pm. This is a free event, binoculars and powerful telescopes are provided and they will be serving hot chocolate and bowls of homemade soup. Children can join in making space themed crafts. No booking required, just turn up but wrap up warm!

Fancy something a little different at the cinema? The children's film club at Tyneside cinema is showing The Moshi Monster's movie at 10:30am on Saturday 1st March. Tickets are only £3.20 each and include a free lollipop and entry into a raffle plus a small popcorn and juice can be purchased for an additional £2.

Looking for somewhere child friendly for Sunday lunch? Why not try the As You Like It kids club? (Booking advised). Captain Jack Sparrow will be making appearances between 12-4pm on Sunday 2nd March. The kids can enjoy story telling, treasure hunts, colouring competitions, face painting and giveaways. The children's menu is £6.95 but it includes a starter, main course, dessert (make your own cookie always popular), bambinocino and drink. The main Sunday menu for grown ups is vast and includes favourites such as brown ale battered fish with chips and traditional slow cooked lamb.

The Busy Bee's World book day event at the Baltic on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd March between 2-4pm is a free drop in event for all of the family. Expect storytellers and artists on hand to help your children create their own masterpieces and write their own stories.

Finally, Woodhorn museum are running a 'stamp a clay tally' craft activity between 12-3pm Sat 1st and Sun 2nd March which has been inspired by the mining tallies in their collection. Entry to the museum is free (car park charges apply).

What are you and your family up to this weekend? Feel free to comment :-)
