What's On for Kids & Teens across North East England | February Half Term 2022

(ad) - Some attractions have paid to be included in this post.  


I have checked and most schools in the North East seem to break up on 18th February so this half term guide covers things to do from 18 - 27 Feb. Apologies if your school is different but I have to go for the majority. 



North of the Tyne, Under the Stars  

A series of FREE events taking place across Newcastle, North Tyneside and Northumberland this February and March. No booking required - simply drop in. 

Look out for the big finale in Newcastle City Centre from 10-13 March. 

Free, drop-in neighbourhood events over February Half Term include: 

  • 18 & 19 February (6-9pm) - Ridley Park, Blyth
  • 18 & 19 February (6-9pm) - Northumberland Park, North Shields 
  • 25 & 26 February (6-9pm) - Richardson Dees Park, Wallsend 
  • 25 & 26 February (6-9pm) - Bellast Hills, Byker 

The story weaver invites you to your local park where fragments of meteor can be found burning amongst the grass. Watch as they appear and celebtrate the magical stories and landscapes that make up North of Tyne. 

You can expect beautiful fire installations, music and the appearance of mythical beasts throughout the evening. Everyone is welcome.

1950s Front Street Opening Celebrations at Beamish Museum
(19 - 27 February) 


I am SO excited for this brand new area at Beamish Museum. Celebrations take place across the week and include: 

  • Take a seat in a booth & enjoy a Traditional Ice Cream from John's Cafe 
  • Order 1950s style Fish & Chips from Middleton's Quality Fish & Chips 
  • Get a 1950s hairstyle from Elizabeth's Hairdressers 
  • Visit a replica 1950s house of famous North East Artist Norman Cornish (includes an accessible art space) 
All visitors need to book a time slot to visit the museum. You can book for February Half Term now and I would recommend booking sooner rather than later as I expect this to be a popular week.
