Geordies: Can We Guess Your Age?

You got: You're in your teens

Still basically a bairn, huh? You don't know you're born: Newcastle is a place of wonder nowadays, and you'll not have known some of the things your parents did and saw.

You got: You're in your twenties

You've seen Newcastle -- and the wider north east -- change from one thing to another, and you're able to bridge that gap in knowledge many people have.

You got: You're in your thirties

Lucky you! You managed to see some of Newcastle's best moments, when independent shops thrived and there was a real sense of independent personality in the region. We long for the days of the Handyside Arcade.

You got: You're in your forties (or older)

From your first secretive sup of alcohol in the glamorous bars and clubs of Newcastle to a sense of pride in seeing how far the city has changed, you've managed to span the ages. And you probably still have some Shephards store money in a drawer somewhere.
