A Different Kind! #SACONNECT Network Event

The Event

On Wednesday 29th August, 2018, hundreds of fans flocked to the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle to take in the spectacular Cirque du Soleil! Featuring everything from trampoline exploits to jaw dropping acrobats, it was all set to be a night to remember. 

Before we get to that, however, let’s take you back an hour and a half before the show began. StreetAway were delighted to be working with the Metro Radio Arena to co-host a hospitality event in their beautiful hospitality lounges. Safe to say, it was a great night from start to finish.

Delicious food and tasty drinks were enjoyed, and it was great to see so many connections in one place, all chatting and sharing expertise and knowledge with each other. Everyone enjoyed the Networking event, and were all curious to know if there would be similar events to this in the future (let’s just say we wouldn’t rule it out!).

The Sponsors

 Of course, we’d like to say a massive thank you to our partners. Without them, this event wouldn’t have been possible, and we are extremely indebted to them for their support and kindness, not just for this event, but all year round. So, in no particular order, here we go. First off, a massive thank you to Telex UK, helping you work on the best strategy in order for you to save money on energy. Next up is NewGen Creative, specialising in online marketing solutions. A big thanks to Y Salon and The Diamante Rooms, two brilliant businesses we have on our app, for helping to pamper and make everyone feel glamorous before the show. We’d also like to extend our thanks to Hygge, offering classes in crafts and therapies, based in Tynemouth. Finally, a massive thank you to the Metro Radio Arena itself for allowing us to host this event in their stunning venue, as well as the fantastic Cirque du Soleil of course, for putting on such a memorable and amazing show! We’ll remember it for years to come!




The Show

Onto the show itself! The main attraction! The spectacle! The show of shows, right here at Newcastle's own Arena! People attending #SACONNECT had heard of Cirque du Soleil, but few had seen a show in person, and there was a real buzz of anticipation! Would the Cirque du Soleil live up to the hype?

It’s safe to say that yes, it definitely lived up to the hype, and boy oh boy have we been missing out over the years! Dazzling visuals, jaw dropping leaps, and gravity defying stunts were just a few of the things members of the audience were treated to on a night that threw the norm out the window, and instead welcomed in the wacky and downright mad! 




And if you were sad about missing out, don't worry, because Cirque du Soleil will be running extra shows this weekend at the Arena!

Trust us, it's fun for the whole family, and you do not want to miss out on the Cirque du Soleil's incredible showing!



All in all, a fantastic event with some great company at another #SAConnect Event, and an even better show from the crew at Cirque du Soleil. What’s not to love? We can’t wait until next time.
