Loads to see and do at Mouth of Tyne festival.

THIS stage will see a host of stars perfoming in the shadow of the magnificent Tynemouth Priory.

Preparations for this weekend's Mouth of the Tyne festival - which features Housemartins and Beautiful South frontman Paul Heaton along with the likes of I Am Kloot, the Specials, and Martha Reeves and the Vandellas - are almost complete.

Running from Friday to Sunday, it is expected around 90,000 people will attend the festival, which is now in its 11th year.

Tynemouth will also be transformed with a carnival atmosphere with hundreds of local school children and young people embracing a colourful 'Diverse Musical Cultures of Britain' theme.

The popular jazz stage will once again be outside of the Gibraltar Rock and free street entertainment will take place on Front Street.

Tynemouth Station will be home to a range of activities for under-fives and 'Platform' - a programme of arts and dance performances - will run alongside the bustling weekend markets.

TyneIdols will present two special vintage coast bus tours, hosted by ex-Lindisfarne drummer Ray Laidlaw.
