36. Event at Newcastle Castle

19th May

Join members of the Newcastle Array re-enactment group in the Blackbird Tavern beneath the Black Gate. For one night only the medieval guard room beneath the Black Gate will be transformed into a medieval tavern populated with colourful characters drinking, gambling, plying their various trades, telling tales and making mischief. Members of the public are encouraged to drop in, say hello, play a game of dice and listen to the tales of the people of medieval Newcastle.

Please note, Newcastle Castle will not be serving alcohol to the public, and unfortunately the Castle Keep will NOT be open during The Late Shows this year.
