Fun and Relaxation

The Geordies work hard and after work they like to have a good time, so fun and relaxation is on the top of the list.  This includes football, dancing and drinking ( not always in that order ).  We like good music, films and plays, therefore, Newcastle has become a multi-cultural city, and the entertainmet is second to non.  From the street venues to the many theartres,  there is always something going on.
 
The weekend sees many from around the country coming to Newcastle to enjoy the night life. Everyone at some time or another heads to the BIGG MARKET "which dates back to 1175 AD", or the QUAYSIDE.  This is where you will find scantily clad girls, with the boys trying to impress them by drooling in their drinks.  There are many pubs in the town centre,  from the quiet and cosy to the lively theme bars.
