Did You Know...?
They don’t like to boast, but Newcastle technically discovered Jimi Hendrix. Chas Candler, Geordie music producer, watched Hendrix play in New York in 1966 and immediately brought him back to Newcastle. Some residents still recall seeing him busk on Heaton’s Chillingham Road!
The Best Newcastle Brands
Greggs - The largest bakery chain in the United Kingdom, and the go-to for a quick sausage roll before you head back to work. The first Greggs opened in 1951 in Newcastle and has since become a staple on the British high street. Their meal deals are pretty awesome too!
Noveltea - Combine the UK's two favourite past times; drinking tea and drinking alcohol. I think we're onto something! These two German-born Newcastle students were fascinated by the Brit's passion for tea and alcohol didn't know why no one had fused them together. So they did it themselves with Noveltea.
Geordie Gifts - A retailer that's passionate about their hometown, Geordie Gifts make handmade gifts and cards with an added Geordie twist. They made their humble beginnings on Facebook alone before setting up camp in local markets, and then finally opening an online shop and permanent store in Grainger Market.
