Mouth of the Tyne Festival is a four-day cultural celebration of music and performing arts that takes place each summer in Tynemouth, North East England. Its main outdoor stage is situated on a coastal cliff location, adjacent to the Tynemouth Priory and Castle, overlooking the King Edward’s Bay beach and North Sea on one side, and the River Tyne on the other.
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 the festival, 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 (last year saw Rufus Wainwright) and Tynemouth Metro Station hosts 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 locally-sourced produce and decorative work.
