The line-up includes Rave of Thrones, we know it’s no longer on our screens, but don’t worry, we can give you a GOT fix in the form of this amazing club night! We’ve got a comedy night, hypnotist show, bar crawl around the best bars and clubs in Newcastle, as well as the fantastic Bingo Revolution club night, it’s bingo, but not as you know it!
