So whether you’re looking to grab a bite or a bargain; have a pint or a freshly-pressed juice; see a gig or visit a top drawer exhibition;  catch a play, wet yourself laughing or take the kids somewhere smashing… we’ll be right here to offer signposts to the best places to enjoy all of the above – and so much more – all the while supporting the cracking crowd of people who are doing it for themselves.

At Only in Newcastle, we’re all about the positive, so if it’s on here, you can take that as a glowing recommendation from us.

Over the coming weeks, we’ll be shouting about more and more of the independent delights which we’re lucky enough to have on our doorstep – and lots of the lovely lot who put it there.

But in the meantime, we’d love you to get stuck in and get involved. Don’t be shy. Tell us about your favourite places to eat, drink, shop and be entertained in Newcastle and Gateshead. Looking forward to hearing all about them.
