The first Alternative Night Market at the Roker Hotel took place on Sunday March, 10 and it was a huge success among guests and stall holders alike.

There were henna stalls, handcrafted jewellery, home accessories and amazing doughnuts from R Place, a North East-based speciality coffee shop.

The alternative markets also raise money for a chosen charity and have previously raised hundreds of pounds for the Sophie Lancaster Foundation.

After the March market, more events were scheduled including one at The Biscuit Factory in Newcastle.
