What's On in North East England for Kids | January 2019

After hibernating over Christmas, I can't wait to get out and about in January again. I have a few days out planned this month including a trip up to Kielder to try the new Zog trail. I can't wait for that! January is all about being frugal too so please share any ideas you have for free/low-cost days out over in my North East Days Out Facebook Group here.
