Want to be a pub expert in Newcastle?

It might seem too good to believe, but it’s not! NewcastleGateshead is looking for a Norwegian pub expert to create an official pub-guide in Newcastle this autumn. The winner will get to go to Newcastle for a week, trying the food and drink menus on all the pubs in Newcastle. And he/she is allowed to take one research assistant along, to help with the workload..

Newcastle is strongly connected to Norway, and the hope is that a pub-guide written by a Norwegian will make it useful for other Norwegians visiting the city. And also to make the city more attractive.

The famous TV-personality Torkjell Berulfsen will be in the jury to choose a winner. So how can I win? – you’re probably thinking. Well, it’s important to be motivated and to have good skills in writing. And of course you have to have a sincere interest for the pub culture being a part of  English culture. 

So hurry! You have until the 20th of September to participate.

    A Norvegian! A person from a country, with strange rules for alcohol-consumption!
    I, indeed, would advise You to elect a – Dane, instead!
    A person, with friends in Newcastle, who has visited the town, several times, and like it very much!
    I am villing to, eventually, accept an election, if asked?

  3. Hello Knut Albert.
    Yes, that’s right, there have been many applications for this job. I think it might be the most popular job to apply for in Norway at the moment!

    I don’t have the exact numbers for you, but I know that applications are ticking in every day. However, we will update you when the competition is finished!

    So, the best of luck to you!

    Kind regards,

  4. Hello Finn.
    I’m glad to hear that you like the city of Newcastle!

    I’m afraid that this competition is only for Norwegians. But I’m sure that in the future, there will be an exciting competition in Denmark as well!

    So until then, be patient and keep reading our blog:)

    Kind regards,

  5. Thanks ! I’m glad you’re enjoying it! Thanks for saying so!
