Coast along at Mouth of the Tyne Festival

Tynemouth, Tyne and Wear

Head east from Newcastle for a laidback, seafront festival that’s a mix of music, performing arts, food and crafts.

The Mouth of the Tyne Festival hits England’s northeast coast in July, bringing well-known rock bands and singer-songwriters to perform in a stunning, cliffside setting amongst the ruins of the mediaeval Tynemouth Priory and Castle.

In addition to the top-billed artists, the festival hosts a diverse array of acts and activities in Tynemouth and South Shields.

The free jazz stage at the top of Front Street is a popular spot for street performers and parades, and the Playhouse Whitley Bay offers a children’s area featuring storytelling, music and crafts. Tynemouth Metro Station is transformed into a venue for the festival, too.

Mouth of the Tyne Festival takes place 6-9 July. This year’s headliners are Elbow, Laura Marling and Tom Odell.
