Meet & Mingle with us at a special fun-filled event to learn more about the Land of Oak & Iron

Are you ever stuck for something to do? Wonder where you can go with the kids in the North East for a fun family day out to some place where you haven’t been before? Perhaps you enjoy a quieter pace of life and are looking for somewhere new to explore while enjoying a countryside walk and taking in the views? Well do we have just the thing for you…

On Wednesday 8 November, we’re hosting our very first Meet & Mingle event.  Taking place at Burnopfield Cricket Club between 7.00pm and 9.00pm, you’ll be able to meet with like-minded people who have an interest in the history and heritage of their local area, while learning more about the Land of Oak & Iron and discovering something new through a fun quiz with special prizes up for grabs too.

With entertainment and live music provided by Community Music Whickham and Swalwell throughout the evening, the night will be topped off with a hot supper for you to enjoy with the new friends you’re bound to make during the course of evening.  What’s not to love?

If you don’t know much about the Land of Oak & Iron, don’t worry – that’s the point of Meet & Mingle!

The Land of Oak & Iron really is a hidden gem across the North East and certainly offers something for everyone. It covers a 177 kmarea surrounding the Derwent Valley including Consett, Rowlands Gill, Prudhoe and Whickham; spanning historic industrial places that once shaped today’s landscape, along with countryside, woodland and natural habitats to explore.

The event is a great opportunity for you to discover something new while finding out more about all of the wonderful history, heritage and natural habitats right on your doorstep during a fun, friendly and really relaxed evening.

We promise you’ll leave knowing more about the area than when you arrived, and we’re hoping you’ll want to come back for more to spend time in the Land of Oak & Iron with your family and friends.

Tickets to the first Meet & Mingle event cost £5 and are available to reserve online via the what’s on page to guarantee their space.  People can pay-on-the-door when they arrive at the venue, or can purchase tickets in advance using a debit or credit card by calling 01207 524881.

By coming along to Meet & Mingle, you can rediscover the area or learn something new for you to enjoy in the Derwent Valley long after the event is over. We really do hope to see you there.
