The Geek Pub Quiz takes place on the 3rd Sunday of each month with loads of questions covering geeky & nerdy topics such as Comic Books, Movies, TV, Videogames, Board games, RPGs and any other pop-culture in between. You can find us every month at Major Tom's Social and follow us on Twitter (@GeekPubQuiz) to see themes, hints and more. We have a picture round, geeky general knowledge round, a specialist subject round & end on an audio round. We also hold a raffle & have over a dozen regular sponsors! Come along and you could win some awesome prizes!
Come down to the bar on your own, with your family or your dog or both. Kick back and relax to an ace selection of Jazz / Trad Jazz / Big Band / Jump Blues. As usual we will also have ale , beer , coffee, tea, cake , pizza, sunday papers & board games to sooth you . Big band Sunday also raises awareness for MSF International
These days we only occasionally put live music on, mainly because we want to put musicians on that we love and find interesting. Martha Hill definitely fits into this and we are really looking forward to having her play at Major Tom's Social.
Martha Hill is a Newcastle based singer/songwriter from Scotland. Accompanied by cellist Ceitidh Mac and multi-instrumentalist Sharon, Martha Hill and her band play a beautiful blend of genres, captivating audiences all over the country. With their roots firmly in folk and jazz, there is a definite timelessness and nostalgia to their music, but since branching out into electronic and pop music, they are far from traditional.
Homage2Fromage Cheese Club is held monthly on the third Monday of every month. Each month the club offers a different cheesy theme.
Vegetarian cheese is some of the most interesting, exciting and innovative cheese - often the most modern and forward-thinking cheese-makers make their cheese veggie to appeal to the widest possible markets, but some older types of cheese are 100% vegetarian - we are exploring them all! There will be some surprises, some quirks and some old favourites that you never thought were actually fully veggie! Soft, blue, hard, all sorts - come along and discover why veggie is the way to go!
As usual, with lovely breads, chutney, fruits and crackers (also veggie - obvs)
"The aim of the club is to celebrate great cheese in an informal fun way - this is not about snobby cheese and wine tastings!"
Tickets and further information are available from .....
