Things are really heating up here in Newcastle. And we are forecasting for a jam packed cultural calendar this July! Read on to find out some of the events we are most looking forward to in the coming weeks.

A Trip to Tynemouth

With the temperatures rising we think a trip to Tynemouth is definitely due to help cool off. Those of you who haven’t ventured to the coast maybe surprised by how accessible it is, clocking in at a 20 minute metro ride from the city centre with even shorter times from popular student areas such as Jesmond and Heaton. Once you arrive you can enjoy the sights of the beautiful beaches and castle. Once you are hungry you can take a stroll to the town centre for plenty of bars and cafes to stop for something to eat and drink.

Bowie at the Brewery – 5th of July

Bowie fans, it’s time. Get out the facepaint and hairspray and head down to Tyne Bank Brewery on the 5th of July to help celebrate the beloved pop icon and 50 year anniversary of single space Oddity. The party will include face paint, fancy dress and will be accompanied by a line-up of local musicians ready to share their favourite tracks. Whilst you are there make sure to grab a bite from the fabulous Il fuoco pizza and Mexican street food from Eat Mexicana.

Wimbledon on NE1's big screen! 1 - 14 July NE1’s Summer

Grab a glass of Pimms or pink lemonade and settle yourself down with a bowl of strawberries and cream because Wimbledon is back! And even better, July sees the return of the Screen on the Green in town. Not only will this serve up a range of films, the open air event will also host Wimbledon during the first weeks of July.

Northern Pride: 19th - 21st July 2019

Northern Pride Festival has become one of the toons favourite summer past times and will be returning to us in the month of July. As always it will offer its residents a wonderful celebration of our LGBTQ+ community. Join the Stonewall Remembrance March to show your pride in the usual annual parade and to also commemorate those who have fought for change since the Stonewall Riots.

Of course the weekend will also be full of great music, with The Town Moor set up as Pride Festival Arena with big names in pop such as Liberty X, Fleur East and Saara Aalto of X Factor Fame. Over at Exhibition Park there’ll be a community village complete with a youth zone, health and wellbeing zone and rainbow village.

This one is definitely one not to miss.
