OPEN FOR BUSINESS: Where you can still go out and live a little in Newcastle and surrounds

This is going to be a tough time for those of us in the arts, entertainment, events, hospo and tourism industries. Actually, this is going to be a tough time for lots of people. 

We love local and want us all to support each other during these challenging times. We’ve put together a list of places who have posted about implementing the necessary precautions so that they can stay open and you can still get out, enjoy the Newcastle life and live a little.

The team at Newcastle Live will do our best to keep an eye on more announcements and updates from venues and businesses – if you know of any additions we should make please let us know!
