The Boiler Shop Steamer

IMG_0045 IMG_0015

Situated in Newcastle upon Tyne close to Central Station and near to the River Tyne is the historic Stephenson Works, the world’s first purpose built locomotive works, famous for the construction of such iconic locomotives as ‘Locomotion’ and ‘The Rocket’.

Derelict for many years until present custodians, The Robert Stephenson Trust along with friends of the Trust, have restored the building to something of its former glory, it is now available for hire as an event space.

On the first Friday and Saturday of each month ‘The Boiler Shop Steamer‘ rolls into town. Brainchild of Riley’s Fish Shack and Wylam Brewery, the event takes over the works and has become a popular place to be seen, welcoming thousands through its doors each month.  Fellow ‘Steamers‘ can sample the many different types of food on offer, washed down with either a glass of wine, local ale or cocktail, whilst an impressive line up of live musical acts keeps everyone fully entertained, such as DJ FLint & Steel, Love & Lies, Alex Butler and Symphonic Pictures! who played at this month’s event.

We were fortunate enough to lend a hand on the wine bar last weekend and hope to do so again in the future, so watch this space …
