What's on in the North East for Kids & Families | 14 & 15 October 2017


We're blogging for Tyne & Wear Metro this weekend and will be using their Little Book of Things to See and Do to discover some well-known places and hidden gems that are accessible by Metro this Saturday. We often don't have access to a car on a weekend as Steve uses it for work and I think the Metro is such a convenient way to get around. You can follow what we're up to via my Insta Stories on Saturday. Here are a few ideas for what else is on in the North East this weekend:
