Taste of Union Square
It goes without saying that student accommodation is an incredibly divisive issue in the Ouseburn Valley at the minute.
For this reason it would be easy to view the Taste of Union Square Food Festival, taking place at the luxury student accommodation on Stoddart Street, with more than a dollop of cynicism.
The event will give people who live and work in the Ouseburn the chance to have a nosey inside the new accommodation and eat some of Newcastle’s finest street food, courtesy of Kitsch’n’ Crepe Co. and Pizzette.
Cynicism aside, we can’t really knock this. It sounds like a tasty way to spend an afternoon. Barbeque flavoured olive branch anyone?
