What's On in the North East for Families and Kids - 15th, 16th & 17th July 2016

This weekend isn't as busy as last weekend when everything seemed to happen at once but there's still lots going on in the North East from a Fifties Festival to historical re-enactments. Why not join our North East Days Out Facebook group for more ideas and inspiration.

  1. The Festival of the Fifties at Beamish looks fabulous, that's what I would be doing, I haven't got tons of work this weekend but 1 photo shoot in the middle of each day so I'm a bit limited in what I can do, looking forward to 6 weeks full of activities though and hopefully some work interspersed to fund them. Can't quite believe that it's only a week until the summer holidays.

  2. The festival of the 50s sounds like so much fun! Old music is so much better than modern music I must admit.
