Sunderland legend the Souter lighthouse is soon to be decommissioned, so it was a grand way for the local landmark to bow out, and what better way for us to watch the performance from the largest ship in the armada scoffing our faces!

This Thursday sees Kate Humble launch her new book “Humble by Nature”, at one of our favourite new foodie places – Vallum Farm. Aside from interviews and Q&A with Kate and local weather girl Hannah Bayman, our eyes and bellies are on David Kennedy & his restaurant team at Vallum, who are putting on some hyper local food for the night. Surely veg-lord Ken Holland & his North Country Growers will be providing something fresh from the days harvest as well.
