Christmas with the Family

Christmas time is the perfect excuse to get the children out and about in Newcastle and the surrounding areas.

The famous Theatre Royal, located on Grainger Street, will be hosting the much-loved pantomime Dick Whittington this year. With Charlie Hardwick (Emmerdale’s Val Pollard) and Newcastle’s comedy trio Danny Adams, Clive Webb and Chris Hayward returning, it’s a family favorite not to be missed.

Maisy’s Christmas Tree at Seven Stories, Ouseburn, will entertain the little ones, as the famous picture book will be brought to life through songs and games. Seven Stories also offer the chance to meet Santa Claus over the festive period!
