It's the most wonderful time of the live in Gateshead!

05 Dec 2017 0 Comments

This week at SEAL Properties we have been busy decorating our office in preparation for celebrating the festive season. As we dressed our tree in tinsel and lined our windows with twinkling fairy lights the team began discussing the different things that we were looking forward to this Christmas. As we came together sharing our ideas and excitement we realised just how many things we have on offer in our local area! We've put together a selection of the festive fun just waiting to be enjoyed right on your door step.

BALTIC Winter Wonderland

Visit BALTIC this festive season on 22, 23 or 24 December to create your own sculptural snowflakes with BALTIC artist, Helen Pailing. Encourage snowy skies with our Ice Elves and take home sparkly reindeer dust ready for Rudolph’s arrival. A creative family activity recommended for ages 3-13. All children must be accompanied by an adult, accompanying adults go free. Autism friendly sessions available. For further information please visit 

Skating @ Life + Friday Night Skate @ Life

The perfect place for a spot of wintery fun with friends and family, skating at Life is a must on your winter check list! Grab your mates and head down to Life where the ice rink is open every day except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day. There's no need to book if you're visiting with fewer than 10 people, just turn up and pay on the day (excludes Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve).

Friday Night Skate sessions bring the party to Life’s outdoor ice rink! With local up-and-coming DJs from Newcastle College providing the tunes, you can enjoy skating to a whole host of hits in what is a truly cool event - there’s no better place to glide into the weekend. Please note - where all are welcome at Friday Night Skate sessions, these events are particularly suitable for ages 14+. Skating sessions last for approximately one hour.

Hadrian's Tipi Newcastle

Hadrian’s Tipi is a 8 week winter pop-up retreat located in the very heart of Newcastle city centre.
It offers everything a hardened Christmas shopper would want on a cold day…

Inside you’ll find a warm log fire, cosy snug seating areas that welcome families, groups and dog owners alike. We have a large well stocked bar of hot & cold drinks  favourites from local breweries and suppliers. Enjoy our outdoor Winter Beer Garden with Christmas trees, atmospheric lights & outdoor shelters to protect you from the elements. Feast on our authentic Bratwurst and Frankfurters flown over from Bavaria served from our large, charcoal fired, swing grill hut. For further information visit

This market brings us gourmet ingredients and a very real taste of Europe. You can get a currywurst from Germany, waffles from Holland, paella from Spain and crepes – both sweet and savoury from France.

Christmas Market at Monument

The Christmas Market takes place at Grey’s Monument, Grey Street and Grainger Street. The Christmas market will be held from 11 December to 17 December 2017 inclusive.
