Wow, you guys move fast, we’re all booked for the 6th April and 1st June just from our email announcement.

You can still book for 4th May in the Grainger Market

Stalls are now £25 each – a table, cloth and 2 chairs are provided. The council require stallholders at the Grainger Market to have public liability for up to £5million.

This might just be an excuse to show off the sign, I’m proud of it. You’ll see our sign outside the doors of the Star and Shadow or beside the Nun Street entrance to the Grainger Market.

We’re really easy to find. If you’re in the Grainger Market head towards the entrance opposite the new Eldon Square bit, we’re in the exhibition space there, right beside the flower stalls. Come by and say hello at our next market on the 2nd February. We’re also back there again on the 2nd March, nice.

How about when we’re at the Star and Shadow? We’re right inside the doors! But also in the bar space. Our next event at the Star and Shadow is a special Vintage and Spring Fashion event on the 17th March, keep your eyes open for more details on that one soon.

Christmas is Coming!

There’s snow falling outside, my fingers are numb and one certain set of neighbours have had their decorations up for a month. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

So, while Newcastle turns white with Snow the Star and Shadow will be turning red and green for our Christmas Market. It’s looking to be a great one.
