What's on Newcastle: April Round Up

Out and about

The official start of British Summer Time has got us feeling very excited to get out and about in our beloved city and enjoy the warmer weather. We have named just a few of the ventures we are looking forward to this month!


Millennium Bridge

Baltic Art Gallery

If you have yet to visit the Baltic contemporary art gallery, make sure to take a walk over the Millennium Bridge and enjoy the amazing views of the Tyne. In the month of April you can enjoy a range of fantastic exhibitions in this amazing space including the collaborative exhibition, Digital Citizen – The Precarious Subject; An exploration of citizenship in the era of ‘fake news’; and Barby Asante’s Declaration of Independence, which focuses on perspectives of women of colour in political spaces.


Papa Ganoush

It’s safe to say we are spoilt for choice when it comes to places to eat in Newcastle. The real struggle can be keeping up with all the new places we want to visit. Number one on our list currently is Papa Ganoush in Jesmond, serving Eastern Mediterranean inspired dishes and small plates including Spiced fries, Lamb and Fenugreek Meatballs, Persian Sea Bass and Baked Aubergine. While their new haunt in Jesmond is open during the day you can also enjoy an evening meal at their Whitley Bay restaurant too. Sound like a plan? Check out the menu before you book.


Jesmond Food Market: 6th April

Jesmond Dene is the perfect place to go when the sun is shining, especially when the Jesmond Food Market is in town. Find some time between 10am – 3pm on April 6th to grab a burger from the Fat Hippo, pick up a freshly baked loaf of bread from Artisan Bakers or some BBQ worthy bangers from Geordie Bangers. Whatever you are hankering for, it is well worth a visit to Armstrong Bridge if you are feeling peckish. Don’t worry too much if you can’t attend the first Saturday in April, the market returns to the Dene every third Saturday.


Food Market: Tyne Bank Brewery: 27th April

Take a stroll down to Tyne Bank Brewery on the 27th April to sample some of the best fresh food in Newcastle. This food market is the first of the season and is well worth a visit to try out a range of yummy foods from local restaurants. Food will include pizza from the pizza van, Flat bread wraps from Flat Earth, meat-free morsels from Sun of Seitan, and chocolate treats from Abaisse. To top it all off you can enjoy your choosings alongside a nice craft beer from the tap rooms. Sounds like the ultimate Saturday to us!


The Girl on the Train at the Theatre Royal: 29 April – 04 May

‘The Girl on The Train’ by Paula Hawkins, took the world by storm on its release in 2015 and became the ultimate summer read of the year. Since then the famous psychological thriller has been adapted for film starring Emily Blunt and now it has made its way to the stage.  Whether you have watched the film, read the book, or neither, you will be guaranteed to be on the edge of your seat during this chilling stage show at the Theatre Royal.

Tickets are only £14.50 and can be bought here.
