Fenwick Newcastle is set to showcase the North’s flag-waving food and drink this summer, hosting a series of bespoke events in celebration of Great Exhibition of the North.
Carefully curated visitor experiences will include everything from supper clubs with renowned and cocktail masterclasses to night markets with live music and one-off, exclusive pop-up stalls, all in the hugely popular setting of the Fenwick Newcastle Food Hall.
Over the four days, in front of passing crowds on the busy shopping thoroughfare, ticketholders will be treated to a unique four-stage gin experience under the guidance of the brand’s experts, including a tasting session and a cocktail masterclass.
In July the highly-anticipated Fenwick Food Hall Night Market will feature an eclectic range of pop-ups and live music. Gin, wine, champagne and craft beer pop-up bars will be set up throughout the Food Hall amongst a selection of tempting food stalls.
Fenwick will also welcome top chefs associated with the North for exclusive Great Northern Supper Clubs – a sure-fire hit with the region’s fine food lovers. Organised by much celebrated chef and restaurateur Terry Laybourne of 21 Hospitality and taking place in Saltwater Fish Company, prominent guest chefs including Kenny Atkinson (House of Tides), Nigel Haworth (Northcote), Shaun Rankin (Ormer Mayfair) and Maunika Gowardhan (Indian chef and food writer), will share insights and anecdotes while cooking for an intimate audience.
Rhys McKinnell, director of restaurants at Fenwick, said: “The Great Exhibition of the North is set to epitomise all that is pioneering and outstanding about the region, so we are excited to join in the celebrations. The successful launch of our Food Hall in 2015 has seen us go from strength-to-strength with our retail offering and dining experience, and has provided a fantastic platform for a number of local and regional brands to build their name.
The Fenwick Food Hall Night Market will run from 6pm until 10pm on Friday 13 July and Saturday 14 July, with tickets priced at £15.
