Newcastle and Gateshead are at the centre of a foodie revolution and boast a packed food events calendar to satisfy taste-chasing tourists from near and far.

There are festivals to tickle every taste bud and quench every thirst with all our favourite flavours, food and beverages catered for!

Whether you're partial to a refreshing Gin and tonic or enjoy sipping a cool pint of beer, craft ale or cider - there is a festival for you. Whatever your tipple, find out where you can sample the finest, award-winning drinks or test out the most unusual flavours from the likes of The Gin Festival to The Rum Festival and The Bathtub Sessions Gin Festival.
