Join us for the Hadrian's Wall Beacon Party! We're taking part in a very special celebration that commemorates the route of Hadrian's Wall. Many people are still unaware of the fact that Hadrian's Wall ran through Byker and Ouseburn Valley, so we're teaming up with the Cumberland Arms to host an evening to celebrate our local history. 

Free to attend | 4pm - 11pm
