What's on in the North East for children and families | 8th & 9th July 2017

Anyone else on summer holiday countdown? I can't wait and after spending last weekend having lots of fun in Whitley Bay (if you haven't checked out our video, you can catch it here), I am hoping for lovely weather again this weekend so fingers crossed! We're blogging for Go North East this weekend and will be using their £10 family bus ticket to visit the NE1 Motor Show and Dino Jaws at Life Science Centre (kids go free if you show your bus ticket) before heading to Tynemouth for dinner. Follow North East Family Fun on Twitter to see where we end up.
