If you’re looking to be entertained this month, Newcastle has definitely got you covered.

Whether you’re a market maven, live music aficionado, comedy connoisseur, sport fanatic and everything in between, there is something happening for you right across the city.

Here are just five events that we think are worthy of putting on your April calendar but remember to head here to stay up-to-date with everything happening around you!

Newcastle Food Month
Various Venues
All of April

Are you hungry, Newcastle? It’s time to indulge in all of the culinary delights the region has to offer because Newcastle Food Month is currently underway!

Fast becoming one of the ‘must dos’ on the New South Wales foodie festival scene, the third iteration of Newcastle Food Month is offering up a tantalising bill of fare including everything from delectable degustation from Thai to vegan and everything in between, Bottomless Brunches to Beer-Gustations, High Teas, beef and whisky feasts, masterclasses, and more.

Bon Apetit!

The Party - Spiegeltent Newcastle
Until Sunday 7 May

Civic Park

Are you ready to party? The Spiegeltent is definitely the place to be this month!

The Party promises an evening of utmost sophistication and one where there are absolutely no rules in true Bacchanalia tradition.

A true festival celebration, The Party invites you to be  wowed by a retinue of jaw-droppingly talented international circus artists, fantastic music, extravagant costumes, and a palpable, escalating energy encased within an opulent theatre set unlike anything you’ve witnessed before.

Velvet Rewired

Wednesday 19 April - Sunday 23 April
Civic Theatre

This fusion of discotheque, nightclub, burlesque, and circus results in an insatiably flawless inferno. 

It's the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas that meets the death-defying world of Cirque de Soleil. From jaw-dropping acrobatics and trickery to naughty costumes and laugh-out-loud comedy, the show packs in entertainment for all ages and tastes. 

Rhys Nicholson
Monday 24 April
Civic Theatre

One of the funniest voices on the Australian comedy circuit, Rhys Nicholson is making a welcome return to Newcastle this month, for what promises to be a night of side splitting hilarity.

Not to let something like a devastating global health crisis from keeping them busy, the last couple years have seen Rhys continue to rise.

From co-opening Melbourne’s newest live comedy venue, The Comedy Republic to numerous acting roles and now setting their talents writing a book of essays, Rhys is focused on continuing to work and diversify in the comedy industry they love so much. 

Rhys promises this show will be a nice little hour where we alal pretend the last couple eof years didn’t happen. Sounds nice, doesn’t it?

Hunter Record Fair

An absolute must for music-lovers, the Hunter Record Fair has grown to become the largest of its kind in the region.

Here you will find stallholders from around the country offering a huge range of new and second-hand vinyl and CDs.

While away the hours browsing literally thousands of records across myriad genres including country, rock, soul, metal, punk, pop, hip-hop, jazz, and blues.
