Craig and I took a long return train ride up to Newcastle-Upon-Tyne on Wednesday to meet up with the good folk from The Juice festival – just chatting over possibilities don’t cha know.
They gave us a zoom around a few of the Newcastle/Gateshead sights/sites. It was genuinely impressive. We met in a great cafe where we ate great soup and sarnies.
Went to Dance City – where we happened upon some eye-watering limbering up exercises. Across the road to the Discovery Museum. Then a taxi ride took us to the amazing Seven Stories which a beautiful centre for children’s books set over seven stories of an old industrial building in the Ouseburn Vally.
A second taxi ride took us to the Great North Museum, which is impressively laid out. Across the road at Northern Stage we discussed possibilities over a pot of tea before walking back down to the station.
Admittedly it was a very brief ‘greatest hits’ visit, but once again we left Newcastle thinking – what a great city. Hopefully we will return… with a show.
