The New Dr Martens Newcastle

You might remember a post the other week about my invite to the new Dr Martens store launch in Newcastle! The launch party took place the other Thursday and what a brilliant night it was! Well done to the team at OPR for putting on a great night, especially to Lauren who invited me along and provided me some some amazing Dr Martens boots.

I was a little late arriving at the store so I grabbed myself a delicious Rose Lemonade from Fentimans and went in search of some fellow bloggers. Upon finding them we marveled at the store’s artwork by Prefab 77 and sampled the food provided by Electric East and of course did a little shopping!

Live music was provided by Hati and Sunderland boys, Frankie and the Heartstrings. There was the chance to take a few more snaps and also use the Dr Martens photobooth which was outside on Grainger St before the party moved to Pleased to Meet You.

PTMY was all DM’d out with fantastic floral table decorations in DR Marten boots. We were spoilt with champagne, canapés and the most incredible mini burger I have ever tasted. I’m planning a trip back already just for another one. Overall it was just a great night with lovely company thanks to Charlotte, Hannah, Fen, Sandra, & Carla.

If you haven’t yet seen the new Dr Martens Newcastle store, it’s definitely worth checking out, you can find them at 153 Grainger Street. Make sure you tell them Girl in the North sent you! Or visit them online at
