The Whole Hogmanay V: A New Year’s Eve Celebration

7pm, Saturday 31st December

Wylam Brewery, Newcastle upon Tyne

Wylam Brewery will be putting on the party of all parties to bring in the New Year Newcastle deserves – think hog roast, a street food village, some of the North East’s best street food traders, midnight fireworks, a fire pit, cool DJs, a gin palace and pop-up brewery bars. An epic way to see in 2023.

New Year Medieval Banquet

7pm, Saturday 31st December

Blackfriars, Newcastle upon Tyne

Blackfriars will be welcoming all honourable dignitaries and townsfolk of Newcastle for a sumptuous feast in their ornate Banquet Hall (established in 1239), for a NYE celebration to remember.

Tickets: from £75.00


New Year’s Eve Masquerade Ball

7pm, Saturday 31st December

Spanish City, Whitley Bay

Hosted in the St Mary’s Lighthouse Suite, which has floor-to-ceiling windows, from Spanish City’s glamorous Masquerade Ball you’ll see the moon glistening on the water as you look out over the coastline – and we can’t imagine anywhere more beautiful to see in the New Year.
