A Grown-Up Festive Weekend in Ouseburn

Ouseburn is one of my favourite areas of Newcastle. I would say it's where all the cool kids go but if I'm honest, I don't think that's true. I think it's better to describe this area of Newcastle as somewhere those in their 30s and 40s like to come to pretend they're cool. So in celebration on my 35th birthday, we decided to spend a child-free weekend here and pretend we were one of the cool kids.

Review & Top Tips | Northern Stage Newcastle Christmas Show 2018 - A Christmas Carol

Northern Stage Christmas Show | Overview & tickets

The Christmas Show at Northern Stage is always something I really look forward to. It's completely different to anything else in the North East and is a fantastic alternative for those who aren't too keen on a traditional panto. The production is always magical with incredible staging and live music. I wasn't too keen on last year's show but think this was a one-off as we still talk about previous shows (with Get Santa being a particular favourite) to this day.

Review & Top Tips | Theatre Royal Newcastle Panto 2018  - Danny and Clive

Theatre Royal Newcastle Panto | Overview & tickets

Goldilocks and the Three Bears starts it's run at Newcastle Theatre Royal on 27 November and continues until 20 January 2019. Newcastle favourites Danny and Clive are always super popular with many people snapping up tickets as soon as they're released year after year. Tickets are available from £15 and it is one of the more expensive pantomimes in the North East which I think is reflected in the production quality.

Alnwick Garden Santa Review


Visiting Father Christmas at Alnwick Garden has always been something I've wanted to do. The photos always look fantastic so this year I decided to splash out and book tickets for Heidi, Jack and Evan to visit after school.

Alnwick Garden Santa Review

There are different ways to visit Father Christmas at Alnwick Garden. We decided to visit after school when the garden was closed. This was advertised as being in the Alnwick Garden Treehouse which is the largest treehouse in Europe and such a magical setting. I paid £16.99 per ticket for the kids and grown-ups were free (charges do apply if you visit through the day etc... My review is based on the after-school weekday experience only).
