Christmas at CastleGate

Christmas is a-coming! And at CastleGate, we have a number of events to tell you about to help usher in the festive cheer! Whether it be Christmas fairs and last minute pressies you’re after, or a chance to sing some carols with friends and family, we have something for everyone!

Kicking off the season is Lou Lou’s Vintage Fair Christmas Special on Saturday 6th December. The Turbine Hall will be packed with vintage market stalls, selling the very best in vintage fashion and home-ware. It will also feature a vintage hair salon, a chance to get your hair styled in your favourite era; as well as a vintage tea party! The fair runs 12-5pm and entry is £2 (under 12s go free).


The following weekend, on Sunday 14th December, City Church is hosting its annual Carols in the City. We would love you to join us for the Christmas story with carols, led by the award-winning Felling Brass Band. It starts at 4.30pm and is extremely family friendly (little people are encouraged to come dressed as a nativity character!). Carols are followed by coffee and mince pies. Everyone is welcome and it is of course, absolutely free!

Finally, the organisers of Newcastle Vegan Festival are bringing Christmas Fest: North East Christmas Fair to the CastleGate on Saturday 20th December. Open from 10am-5pm, the Turbine Hall will be amass with stall holders and visitors picking up their last minute stocking fillers. Christmas Fest will welcome stall holders from all over, with items such as homemade jams, delicious cakes and chocolates. Once you’ve had your fill, you can find a special gift amongst the scarves, home made jewellery, leather bags and hand thrown pottery on sale. Entry is £2 per person in advance or on the door.


Whatever your plans this festive season, we wish you a wonderful Christmas! If we don’t see you before, we do hope to welcome you at CastleGate sometime in the New Year.

Merry Christmas, from all at CastleGate!
