Food & Drinks
There is a number of stalls offering food and drinks on the day. From Minion cupcakes, to imported cans of pop, you will find a big variety to choose from. The only thing they don’t sell is alcohol – the bar is covered by Northumbria University. So if you want a pint you will just have to follow the signs leading you to the Habita bar which is literally next to the entrance of the building.
