CITY LIVING; Preview LIVE WORK SHOP EAT & BREATHE NEWCASTLE GATESHEAD.
But rather than lament the end of the summer, our October issue looks to embrace it.
Francesca Craggs makes sure you are bang on trend this autumn with the best fall fashion for men and women.
Shorter days mean longer nights, so we also give you our pick of how to use them effectively - in Newcastle and further afield. As always, Karen Wilson helps you work toward a perfect pad and Mieka Smiles puts something else to the test: this month, life coaching.
It's also our 'Up for Grabs' special - we have three whole pages jam-packed with prizes waiting to be won.
So, as you can see, there is plenty to be cheerful about this October. Have fun!
