On Air Now
Smooth Love Songs with Martin Collins 10pm - 1am
New for 2017 - Newcastle Food & Drink festival comes to Leazes Park on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th May.
The park is a fantastic setting for the festival and only five minutes from the City centre.
The hot food court will offer up some of the best street food traders around in their quirky vans and units with food inspired from all corners of the globe.
The array of local producers will be housed in our huge marquee and will be offering for sale their cheeses, chutneys, preserves, breads, olives, spirits, liqueurs and plenty more.
There will be live music on stage throughout the day from local bands and artists. With an array of deckchairs why not sit back and relax and keep your toes tapping to the music all day long.
Last but not least, there will be a whole host of speciality bars to enjoy a drink from including our real ale bar, gin bar, cocktail bar and of course pimms & prosecco!
The festival would not be complete without some entertainment for the little ones so there will be FREE children’s entertainment in the children’s marquee where the children can enjoy magic shows, bubbleology, balloon modelling, crafts, party games and disco/karaoke plus much more over the weekend.
Kiddy Cook will be offering children’s cookery classes where children ages 3 to 11 can learn how to cook a variety of dishes as well as learning the science behind food as well and to top it all off they’ll also be a funfair and bouncy castles.
For those who feel brave enough, there's a daily Man v Food competition taking place on the main stage which. Quite entertaining to watch, but only those with guts and determination need apply!
The weekend is a great place to meet up and socialise with friends and family so save the date!
Adult: £3.50 / Child: FREE
