happening in that area over that weekend.

The Bridge Folk Club, has a singer’s night on Easter Monday 28th Mar.
Previously known as Folk Song & Ballad, it is – they claim – the oldest club
in the country, operating in the Bridge Hotel, in Castle Square, right
opposite the Keep on the Newcastle end of the High Level Bridge. You can get
to the Bridge very easily by train, metro and bus, and there is ample
parking for cars.

No longer running AFAIK.
Whoops – missing from website. High Level Ranters + Bert Draycott.
Suggest getting there early. Usually preceded by session.

The Wednesday evening session in the Cumberland Arms in Byker is worth
crossing the river for.
