Iced Novo: August 18 at the Croat / by Kian West

Read the title and wonder what half those words are? 

Iced Novo is an annual event run by some of the awesome people that admin the Facebook Group: The Newcastle Echo. I believe the title is a bit of a tongue in cheek play on the classic biscuit Iced Vovo, equally delicious us Novocastrians or 'Novos'. (This is completely a guess).
The Croat is short for The Croatian Wickham Sports Club.

As the Facebook Event describes: 
"It's on again, Newcastle's premier event where we celebrate all things Newy while basking in the sunshine, drinking beer, eating exotic foods and having a little shopping spree at everyone's favourite venue The Croatian Club. 
This year we are raising loot for the Club, which is working with Climate Action Newcastle, to GO SOLAR. This will slash electricity bills and help the club stay viable. 
There will be two stages: The Andrew Johns stage will kick off in the evening, while the Daniel Johns stage will keep things mellow during daylight hours. 
The final line-up for the Andrew Johns stage is: East Coast Low, Bitchcraft, Cherry Stain, The Buzzard Mix, Motherlode and Kahibah Brass. 
Big thanks to all the musos who are playing for free. 
Acts on the Daniel Johns stage are still being finalised, but it will be sweet. 
Fire and Flow are back on the green at sunset. 
Market stalls can be booked by contacting Sharon Witt. 
Family friendly. Dog friendly. Diversity friendly. 
It's shaping up to be even better than last year, so whack this one in the diary."

Looking for something to do with your Saturday? Sorted. 
Plus, like all great clubs, The Croat has some solid Club drink prices so get amongst it.
