After a successful launch last Friday, the eclectic Bar Eats n Beats event at The Station is shaping up to be a regular ‘must-do’ on the calendar.
Organisers Danielle Mayes and Nat Brown said the opportunity to help breathe new life into the former Newcastle Train Station site.
“We are really thrilled to be involved – there is nothing else like The Station in Newcastle, which is what attracted us to create an event for this amazing space,” Danielle said.
“Our event is about people and experiences, and we know from running Twilight Food Market Feast Fest at Speers Point Park and at Blacksmiths Beach, that good food, good music and good people make a winning combination.”
Every Friday, you can find food trucks offering sumptuous international cuisine, creative market stalls, live and local music as well as a free kids’ zone for both the young and young at heart, making this a great way to se in the weekend with the whole family.
The Station also has a licensed bar with an array of local craft beer and wine.
“This Friday our music line up includes Charlie Luckman, Paul Nickerson and Dynamite Duo,” Nat said of this week’s festivities.
“We will also have some great food on hand with paella, sliders, Mexican, dumplings, Greek, Gozleme, Argentinian BBQ, Vietnamese, slow cooked meats, loaded fries, crepes, pancakes, churros and more and make sure you bring the kids as we will have a special zone for them.”
There is also plenty of parking near The Station with free street parking from 5pm. The closest carparks include Newcastle Foreshore, Bolton Street Carpark and King Street Mall. There is also free parking at No 2 Sportsground from 5pm and the light rail runs regularly from the Interchange into the city.
