Disney On Ice Newcastle 2021 : Top Tips

 Ad - We had press tickets but were not paid or asked to write this post. 

This post is based on my personal experience of watching the show on 8 December 2021. This may differ from others' experiences and as always, always contact venues direct for the most up to date info. 

Disney On Ice Newcastle 2021 : Top Tips

How long before the show should I arrive? 

We arrived at Central Station at 5:30pm for a sold out show with a 6:30pm start. We walked to the arena, through the COVID check, through the metal detectors, stood in the merch queue in the foyer, ordered drinks from the  bar and were in our seats for 6:20pm. I would say if you want to buy merch/food etc....aiming to be in Newcastle an hour before the show starts is a good idea. There were quite a few latecomers.

The Christmas Chronicles | December 2021

6 December 2021 

Hope you all had a good weekend! Ours was filled with lots of festive fun. Starting on Friday night and a girls night out in town. We had drinks at All Bar One and a festive meal at Cote Brasserie. I've dined at Cote a few times and it never disappoints and Friday was no different. Excellent service, excellent food, excellent wine.

I loved catching the last bus home. Some lads at the back started a Christmas sing song and the whole bus joined in with the singing. Such a good atmosphere and it felt so nice to be part of something so simple and spur of the moment, especially as 'I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas' echoed around the bus. Lush!

What's On For Kids & Teens (December 2021)

This post includes advertisements. 

Welcome to December! Here is my ultimate guide to things to do this month. I have tried to only include events which do not need to be booked or which have plenty of availability.

It is super important that you double check event details with venues direct when planning a trip and before heading out as information may change and events can be cancelled / postponed (especially if they've been affected by the recent storm).

Top 5 Independent Kids Shops in Northumberland

Today's post has been shared by Hayley (images also credited to Hayley except where stated). Over to Hayley...... 

I don’t know about you but every year the thought of going Christmas shopping for presents for my kids and nieces and nephews fills me with dread..

I’m not being a bah-humbug but the crowds of people, the jostling over the last “must-have” toy on the shelf and the fact that it feels like it’s an endurance race for tired parents rather than an enjoyable shopping experience, are enough to make me pull the duvet further over my head.


Ice Skating & Santa at Manor Walks Cramlington

 AD - we were invited to press night but have not been asked or paid to share this post. 

Ice Skating at Manor Walks Cramlington 

Ice Skating & Santa at Manor Walks Cramlington

This ice rink at Manor Walks is located outside between Concordia and Asda. It is made from real ice and measures 32 x 15m. The ice rink is open daily from 11am - 9pm from 2 December - 2 January 2022.

The ice rink is closed on Christmas Day but it is open on Christmas Eve, Boxing Day, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day so worth considering if you are looking for something to do on these dates. 

Rainton Arena Winter Wonderland Review

AD - This post has been written by Grace Porter who attended Rainton Winter Wonderland in November 2021 with their family. Please always double check info with attraction direct when making plans / before heading out. Over to Grace....... 

The Winter Wonderland is hailed as the largest Christmas attraction in the North East with 45 fairground rides and stalls, a pantomime, live entertainment and Santas’s Grotto. It has become an annual tradition at Rainton, offering fun for all ages, both indoors and outside so we were looking forward to seeing for ourselves!
