This years Late Shows were a veritable hive of activity, with all kinds of weird and wonderful things going on. We spent Friday night in the Ouseburn valley, browsing the beautiful open studios in Lime Street Studios, hanging out with the animals in Ouseburn Farm and busting some vintage moves on the dance floor in the Toffee Factory, with retro cocktails.
Saturday night was spent in the city centre, checking out The Laing Art Gallery's space themed exhibitions, making robots out of rubbish. Watching the Bangshees rocking out in the City Library, a female group of drummers who were allowed to rip the silence out of the library with awesome rhythms! Followed by hours of fun in the 6 floors of The Newbridge Project open studios.
The Late Shows have 50 venues around Newcastle open after hours, a bit like a pub-crawl but for all things arty and creative! It is such good fun I recommend it to everyone!
