The first acts have been announced for the 11th annual Mouth of the Tyne Festival which takes place from Wednesday 8th to Sunday 12th July 2015. With music and the performing arts across four main locations: Tynemouth Priory and Castle, Playhouse Whitley Bay, Tynemouth Front Street and Tynemouth Station. 

Announced so far are Tynemouth Priory and Castle stage headliners Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott performing on Friday 10th, and The Specials rop the bill on Saturday 11th.

Ticket for the two confirmed events above go on sale on Friday 12th December priced £29.50 for Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott, and £40 for Saturday with The Specials. Booking fees apply. We'll have links to buy when on sale.

Sunday is a dedicated ‘family’ day. Besides nationally-known bands there is a very popular free jazz stage at the end of Front Street, which will be a blaze of colour and activity throughout, and includes a programme of street performers, parades and the hugely popular children’s pageant.

The Playhouse Whitley Bay will play host to live bands and musicians (Midlake/ John Cooper-Clarke performed 2014) and Tynemouth Metro Station features a takeover for the duration, with dance troupes and a wide variety of musicians and performers. There will also be a designated ‘Early Years’ area for children featuring a storytelling, music and craft activities. Local food and craft stalls will line the station’s platform offering a delicious array of artisan produce and decorative work.
