I’ve been hearing a lot recently about the Magic Weekend that’s coming to Newcastle in May. I have to admit, at first I did think it might be something to do with magicians, illusionists and the like but my rugby loving friends soon put me right! I should have known better really, after all, I am originally from Rochdale, a town with a huge rugby league following.
So when I found out that the general manager of rugby league Blake Solly was in the Toon, I whisked him off for breakfast at Blakes on Grey Street for a good old chin wag to find out more…
Sounds like the Magic Weekend is going to be a blast and it’s all happening right here in Geordieland, 30th & 31st of May. To find out more and get tickets just head on over to this website: www.rugbyleaguetickets.co.uk/magic_weekend
Oh, and in case you were wondering, I had porridge with honey and raisins and Blake had a bacon and egg stottie (good man!)
