Newcastle's festivals - Must See celebrations

Newcastle's festivals - Must See celebrations

Author: Andrew Regan

Newcastle is a city that knows how to party - and you can discover this for yourself by visiting the city during one of its many annual celebratory events. Newcastle plays host to a plethora of different festivals throughout the year and there's always bound to be one that takes your fancy.

As well as being a welcoming city in the north east of England, Newcastle has the charm of being a destination where something's always happening, meaning it's a fantastic place to visit at any time of the year. For example, why not head on a wintry trip to the city to experience Chinese New Year being seen in in style? Every February, Newcastle's Chinatown area transforms into an explosion of colour and celebration as the area welcomes in the New Year amidst massive parties and events.

Continuing down the cultural route, the Newcastle Mela takes place in August and involves two days of music, food and theatrical events celebrating Punjabi, Pakistani, Hindu and Bengali cultures - an excellent opportunity to get a distinct flavour of new customs and traditions whilst staying close to home.

For those who like their big events to centre around one of Britain's favourite customs - drinking - the Newcastle Beer Festival is sure to please. This event occurs every April and is organised by CAMRA - the Campaign for Real Ale - so you know you'll be in good hands. You'll be able to sample a staggering array of delicious ales during your visit, making the trip a memorable one packed with new experiences.

Music fans also won't be disappointed, with plenty of opportunities like the Evolution Festival - a musical extravaganza bringing together a host of acts from the rock, indie and pop worlds over the spring Bank Holiday - taking place throughout the year.

On top of this, Newcastle also plays host to a plethora of sporting festivals, like the annual cycling festival, the race week and the Ouseburn Festival, which dedicates itself to healthy family fun over two days.

Newcastle festivals are certainly some of the best the UK has to offer and, with such a wide variety of celebrations to attend - such as the NewcastleGateshead Comedy Festival in March and the EAT! food and drink festival in May - you're bound to find one to suit your tastes.

No matter what kind of festival you are visiting Newcastle for you can be sure the many Newcastle Newcastle hotels , bars and restaurants throughout the city will be only to happen to welcome you into their establishments as you explore their festival-loving city.
