Street food. Live music. Around-the-world gin bar. Craft beers. Espresso martinis. If all this sounds up your street, check out Flavours & Beats – a brand new event hosted by Savour Magazine and Groundwork South Tyneside and Newcastle (STAN) at Jarrow Hall this weekend (Fri 24th-Sat 25th November).
Street food vendors include The Geordie Bangers, PHI Pies, which offers traditional Greek cuisine of pork and chicken gyros and vegetarian options, and Caribbean street food experts, The Calabash Tree. While Dark Steam Division is offering signature coffees alongside its “grown-up” range of coffee blends with Irish Cream, Amaretto, whisky, orange liqueur hot chocolates and espresso Martinis.
On the bar you’ll find Tarquin’s Cornish Navy SeaDog Gin – voted “Best Gin” at the San Francisco World Spirits event, Spirit of Hven Organic Gin, Rhubarb Gin and London Dry Gin from The Spirit of Harrogate, and gluten-free beers from Autumn Brewing Co. There will also be a unique American Pale Ale, New World Pale Ale and Stout specifically made for Flavours & Beats by Little Black Dog Beer.

And cnfirmed for Saturday’s line up is South Shields-born Sonny, who’s making waves in the music industry after releasing his debut single, Princess, on Spotify, Soundcloud and Apple Music – and is supporting Gabrielle Aplin on her UK tour.
