Street Spice festival in Newcastle

Today, Saturday 2 March, is the last day of the Street Spice festival in Newcastle organised by Sachins restaurant in memory of musician Kuly Ral who sadly died from a brain tumour last year. The event is raising money for The Brain Tumour Charity.

The festival is taking place in a marquee outside Newcastle’s Centre of Life where hundreds of spicy food experts have gathered to offer a fusion of different tastes, cultures and experiences at affordable prices. There are also demonstrations to watch and a variety of entertainment on offer including Bollywood dancers.
