Newcastle isn’t just famous for Geordie Shore (although we do love the Sam Jack’s bar!), It’s also known for its brilliant array of hen party activities; learn that classic dirty dancing routine, take part in a flirt and seduction masterclass or get behind that bar and mix up your very own cocktails with your own private cocktail making session.
