Ultimate Guide to Father’s Day in Newcastle

It’s Dad’s time to shine this weekend, and with so many fun Father’s Day activities on offer in Newcastle, it’s hard to pick just one! Check out the full list below…


Fun, games, and delicious wood-fired fare at The Edwards’ ‘Ned’s Shed’

The Edwards will be converting their industrial garage area into ‘Ned’s Shed’ – a space where kids, grandkids, and grown-ups can enjoy some hands-on activities with their favourite father figures! You can try your hand at making a wooden masterpiece with help from the Newcastle Mens Shed, pet some very cute visitors from The Menagerie Petting Zoo, or pick up a lovely bunch of flowers by the girls from Oh Fleur!, because dads love flowers too!

The Edwards’ delicious wood-fired fare will certainly hit the spot. And since it’s dad’s big day, make sure you treat him to a tall and frosty one from their great beer selection!
