2013 Summer in the City Calendar of events.

NE1'S SUMMER IN THE CITY CALENDAR OF EVENTS 2013 NE1'S QUAYSIDE SEASIDE 1 May - 30 September Back in the city for- four months from 31 May - September, Newcastle Quayside's very own pop up beach with beautiful white sands and palm trees.

Pull up an NE1 deck chair and watch the world go by or, if you are feeling energetic, round up some friends for a game of beach volleyball on the beach volleyball court.

Quayside Seaside has been welcomed into the heart of the city and its return was heralded with a storm of tweets from people delighted to see its return. This year the beach is 20% bigger with more sand and decking to be enjoyed by the thousands of visitors to Newcastle's Quayside during the summer.

NE1'S NEWCASTLE COCKTAIL WEEK 15 - 21 July Cocktail shakers at the ready - the art of cocktail mixology will enter a new level when the city raises its glasses to toast the first ever, NE1 Newcastle Cocktail Week from 15 to 21 July.

Summer in the city just got more interesting with a whole host of city centre bars and venues on board to celebrate NE1 Newcastle Cocktail Week. Cocktail lovers will be able to enjoy a mouthwatering array of cocktails at 3 different price points - PS3, PS5 and PS7 - at a number of different venues across the city.

Like NE1's highly successful Restaurant Week which encourages diners to try out new restaurants with fixed price menus, NE1's Newcastle Cocktail Week will provide cocktail lovers with the opportunity to sample cocktails at a fraction of their usual prices and maybe try out new bars in the search for the perfect libation.

Among the many venues where the cocktail waiters will be in overdrive are Fat Buddha, Popolo, Revolution and Livello, to name but a few. There has been a city-wide resurgence in cocktail mixology with it reaching art form proportions in many venues.

Mixologists take great pride in their work and enjoy the performance of producing lovingly created cocktails for their guests. During Cocktail Week, NE1 has lined up a series of cocktail masterclasses to allow enthusiasts to learn the art of creating the perfect cocktail.
