In Events

If you've ever checked out my blog, you'll know I'm not one to shy away from new experiences so I was eager to give quad biking a try. I wasn't sure what to expect other than getting covered in mud but it was so much fun, the site at The Quadfather in Cramlington is huge with friendly instructors to get you out of any sticky situations. I'd definitely recommend it to any thrill seeker!
My visit to Dance City was also a first, but it certainly won't be my last. This purpose built building in the heart of Newcastle is the place to go if you want to learn a few moves in anything from ballet to belly dancing. There are regular performances in the Dance City theatre too for those who prefer to watch others do all the hard work.
After all the exertion it's no surprise that I was ready for some R&R so a visit to St Mary's Inn with my lovely sister in law was just what the Dr ordered. It's just a short drive from Newcastle and the food is delicious, I'm already planning a return visit to try the afternoon tea.
Other highlights in July included Newcastle Pride, a festival that celebrates the city's LGBT community. There was live music to keep the party going all weekend and I loved bopping away to Bewitched! This was the same weekend as Americana Festival at the Sage which sadly I missed but after seeing Booker T at last year's event I'm sure it will have been another fantastic festival.
To keep up my adventures in Geordieland throughout August be sure to follow me on Twitter @rachmotormouth and check back here  next month for another round up.
