We're off to Sorella Sorella on Saturday to try out their children's afternoon tea and then it's our annual blogger's picnic on Sunday where we'll be heading to South Shields. Please keep your fingers crossed for sunshine! Follow our Instagram Stories to see behind the scenes.

Farmers across the UK are opening their doors for LEAF's annual open farm Sunday. Discover what life is really like as a farmer and discover all of the fantastic work they do in our region.

  • If you fancy a trip to the cinema with the kids, I can highly recommend Wonder Woman. Check out our review of the movie here
  • If you fancy trying somewhere new for Sunday lunch, I can highly recommend Evan's Bistro in Whitley Bay. Their menu is 2 courses for £12 for grown ups and they have a board game corner to entertain the kids. The children's menu is less than £5 (see our review here).
  • Please feel free to join our North East Days Out Facebook group if you're looking for more recommendations. 


Remember to check details before heading out - things can change and I would hate to leave anyone disappointed.
