What’s On Newcastle: September Round Up

Out and about

The last of the summer maybe fading away and for sun lovers the autumn chill in the air maybe bringing with it some autumn blues. But fear not, the month of September also brings with it plenty of exciting activities to help your summer holidays go out with a bang.

Great Exhibition of the North

And last but by no means least, if a busy summer schedule has kept you thus far from checking out the amazing Great Exhibition of the North we would definitely urge you to check out some of the events happening all over Newcastle and Gateshead before it leaves for good on the 9th of September. This summer has seen some of the North’s finest cultural venues play host to a range of fantastic events and exhibits. The Great North museum for example has been home to Damien Hirst’s Heaven (2009), a formaldehyde encapsulated shark. Heaven is the latest version of Hirst’s original inception, The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living which rocked the art world in early nineties. While the Baltic offers a time capsule to Northern beats through The North in 100 Songs pop art exhibition by Manchester based illustrator Stanley Chow.

And of course make sure you visit Northumbria Campus to visit our very own #GetNorth exhibits. All exhibits will run until the close of the Great Exhibition of the North on 9 September and are located across the Northumbria University City Campus.


Bring Your Best Wine Night Dobson and Parnell: 5th September

Want to kick off the new term in style? Head to Dobson and Parnell on Wednesday September 5th for a three course a la carte meal. And the best bit it is, the wine is on you! The first Wednesday of the month special allows you to bring your own bottle of wine helping you to enjoy a fancy meal at a much lower price – and without a pesky corkage fee. Pair your bottle of fizz with a range of delicious dishes from charred line caught mackerel to truffle smothered hand rolled pasta. Yum.

Spice Girls Show: 6th September

Plenty of people born in the nineties and noughties will remember the endless pop appeal of the spice girls. If you are looking to spice up your life (sorry about that) this September, you better head down to the City Hall on the first Thursday of September for Wannabe: The Spice Girls Show. Embrace Girl Power this autumn with all the hits of the biggest British Girl band of all time! Costumes, groups & families are all welcome. Tickets are still available here.

Great North Run: 9th September

If you have yet to sign up for the Great North Run this year that does not mean you cannot partake in this year’s festivities. Make sure to head down to town or the coast to cheer on the likes of Mo Farah. You may spot some other famous faces in the crowd with this year’s celebrity participants including Olly Murs and Ross Noble.

Daft Punk Orchestra: 12th September

After numerous sold out shows across the UK, The 13 piece, Daft Punk Orchestra will be making its way to the 02 academy to perform some of the greatest hits from the electric French duo. Make sure you get your tickets before the big night.

Newcastle Vintage & Street Food Market: 23rd September

Newcastle locals and vintage lovers are in no doubt familiar with Judy’s Vintage Fair, which regularly makes its way to Newcastle. And has even previously been housed in Northumbria University itself. For cash strapped students, this vintage fair is the dream. This September Judy and her garms will be making themselves at home in The Boiler Shop by central station. You can peruse over 40 stalls of retro clothes, accessories, homeware for just £2 entry and even fuel up on street food and drinks at its very own bar. Enjoy!
