This year was a bit different in the sense that I not only attended The Mouth Of The Tyne Festival, but I actually attended on 3 out of 4 days and it was BRILLIANT. This year there were more days for the festival than previous years.
Crowds came from all over the place and they had mostly booked and paid for their tickets in advance but there were one or two still available at the gate. For those who had not managed to purchase tickets, the sounds of the musicians could be clearly heard from most of Tynemouth Village area, be it along the cliff sides, the beaches or the village itself. The pubs were packed, fish and chips in abundance and everyone was feeling high! And what is more, the weather was good!
This year we were entertained by brilliant artists.
The line-up from 7th July to 10th July was:
Thursday – Bryan Ferry (brilliant) and Nadine Shah
Friday – Will Young and Tunde Baiyewu (Lighthouse Family, both amazing)
Saturday – James Bay, Hyde & Beast and Tom Smith (we did not make this but heard it was a great performance))
Sunday – Lulu and Lemar (fabulous)
Well, you can bring in your own food and drink, chairs and anything else you may need except glass. So we did. We had a great time over those few days, dancing and singing at the top of our voices and chilling out. AND my friend and I can walk there and back! All of this with FAB views of The Priory and The Mouth Of The River Tyne. A festival for the whole family to enjoy.
We try to attend every year and I am sure we will be there next year!
