Colors of Newcastle - traditions, festivals, mentality and lifestyle

The River Tyne & Baltic Flour Mills In the past, Newcastle was a major industrial city, but its industrial lifestyle was replaced by a new one full of interesting traditions and festivals. One of the main features of the local culture is the "Geordie" dialect, which is spoken by all citizens. It is so different from classical English that even people from neighboring cities can hardly understand the local accent. The formation of such an unusual dialect was influenced by Anglo-Saxon and Celtic cultures. Geordie is considered the most unusual British dialect. In Newcastle, they even sell special dictionaries, which can be purchased at local newsstands or supermarkets. It can be useful even for native English speakers.
A lot of interesting entertainments await travelers in Newcastle. Today, Ouse Burn Centre can be found in the old industrial district. This area has preserved old mills and storage … Open
The former industrial city lives a vibrant cultural life. Today Newcastle has many theaters, art centers, and concert halls. Such cultural centers have become one of the favorite leisure spots for the townspeople. No concert or theatrical premiere is left without attention here. It is noteworthy that great attention is paid to classics - classical music concerts are often attended by many local residents. It is customary to hold such concerts not only in special concert halls but also in some ancient cathedrals, which makes performances even more exciting.
Interesting festivals are organized in Newcastle hosts all year round, and many of them are dedicated to sports. Most sporting events and festivals take place in the warm season. In October, it is customary to hold a traditional half marathon, the largest sporting event of its kind in Europe. This sports festival is called the Great North Run, and about 50,000 people become its participants every year. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

In winter, the main celebrations are held on the occasion of the New Year and Christmas. The main winter holidays are accompanied by lush celebrations that are not inferior to London's festivities in scale. A few weeks before the New Year, traditional fairs open in the main city squares to sell popular sweets, toys, and souvenirs. The townspeople are not used to celebrating New Year at home, while Christmas is considered a "home and family" holiday. On New Year's Eve, there are always a lot of people in the streets, interesting entertainment programs and traditional fireworks are organized.
Newcastle Historical traditions are an important component of everyday culture for local residents. Newcastle has craft and art workshops allowing their visitors to get acquainted with the traditions of the native population. In such workshops, tourists prefer to buy all kinds of exclusive souvenirs. Several times a month, local artists and artisans present their masterpieces in the city's main market Quayside. On such days, the market turns into a real open-air art gallery where sellers put their best goods on the shelves.

Locals are known for their friendly and welcoming nature. Despite the fact that most tourists discovered Newcastle relatively recently, foreign guests have always been treated kindly here. Local people are always ready to show the way to any point of interest. Many first-time visitors to the city note that people here love and know how to have fun. In summer, they hold street performances and fairs one after another - the townspeople don't really need a special occasion for another party. Today, only a few surviving industrial buildings remind us of Newcastle's rich industrial past. Many historic buildings are currently occupied by cultural and art centers. Over the past years, the city has been considered one of the major European art centers.
Newcastle Another interesting feature of Newcastle is its vibrant nightlife. Many travel guide books describe it as the location of many popular nightclubs. Local clubs are never empty because a lot of young people live in the city, and their diversity allows everyone, even middle-aged people, to find a decent place to relax. Local clubs often hold live concerts, therefore, in terms of the cultural program, they are not inferior to cultural centers. Newcastle can be safely called one of the most unusual and interesting British cities to explore. It is actively following all modern trends and offers its guests great opportunities for a rich cultural holiday.
