Music, culture and fashion in Newcastle
Date Posted: 11/05/12
Travellers going on city breaks to Newcastle in the coming weeks have a lot to look forward to as the city is full to the brim with exciting events.
One highlight is the Late Show, which runs on Friday, May 18th and Saturday, May 19th. It's a night time event with a variety of shows and exhibitions going on around Newcastle's venues. Visitors can even visit museums and galleries after hours as part of the late night culture crawl.
Newcastle Fashion week also takes place from Saturday, May 26th to Sunday, June 3rd as the city celebrates its position as the capital of fashion in the north. There will be a number of catwalk shows, industry talks and shopping events.
"Music fans are in for a treat with the return of Evolution Festival (Sunday, 3rd June - Monday, June 4th). Dizzee Rascal, Maximo Park, deadmau5 and Rizzle Kicks are just some of the brilliant acts on the bill," said Carol Bell, the head of culture and major events at NewcastleGateshead Initiative.
For those that prefer the Central American flavour, why not head to the ¡VAMOS! Festival of Latin and Lusophone Culture from Friday, June 1st to Sunday, July 15th?
