5 Ideas for a Date in the North East this Weekend | 19th, 20th & 21st August

I've been writing weekend event posts for families over on North East Family Fun for a few months now and they are always really popular so I thought I would try the same for grown ups over here on Life As Mrs R.

Most of these events are child-friendly too (so if you have kids in tow, don't be put off attending)  but if don't have children or are lucky enough to escape their clutches for a few hours this weekend, here are 5 ideas for where to visit with your other half or best friend in the North East this weekend:-
