The great thing about Newcastle’s nightlife is it’s not just for Grownups only. There is something in the box for members of every age group. At night, there are special shows performed by a various group of artists depicting the vast history of the place.

They also share stories from back in the day, stories that move your heart and makes your eyes wet. Stories that fills your heart with joy and brings you a smile on your face.
