10th annual alternative music festival to be its last.

THE only alternative Northumberland music festival will put on its final event and donate all proceeds to a charity.

The Out of the Trees Festival - an alternative music event - returns for its 10th and final year on January 3, 2015.

The festival, which originally began in 2005, has developed into a day-long festival that showcases musicians and artists from the North East.

The folk, alternative, punk and indie music festival previously aided the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation, SPOWE Uganda, Morden Tower and the British Red Cross Philippines Crisis Appeal.

As it hosts 19 acts of eclectic musicians from the region next year, it will aid the charity Samaritans, which supports people in distress.

The musical performances on the day of the festival will start at 1pm with a line-up including Life Model, Blackflower, Pillow, Richard Dawson, Nev Clay, This Little Bird, John Egdell and Field Head.

The artists will perform across three venues in Northumberland, including The Hermitage Inn, The Masons Arms and in the village Memorial Hall that are all located in Warkworth.

Festival-goers will have transportation provided free of charge from Newcastle Central station to Warkworth and back.

In honour of its 10 years, the festival is also launching its final incarnation on December 30 at Head of Steam in Newcastle.

The night will host live music from Tyrannosaurus Dead, Skull Puppies, Baker Island and Rushers, as well as a DJ. The special event starts at 7pm and is free for those with purchased festival tickets or PS3 at the door.

Tickets to the festival are PS15, which include a spot on the bus to and from Warkworth.
