It’s hard to believe that a decade has passed since the first The Mouth of the Tyne Festival graced the North East with its sensational live music sets at Tynemouth Priory & Castle. The iconic festival returns this summer to celebrate its tenth anniversary with spectacular live music at Tynemouth Priory & Castle, special shows at the Playhouse Whitley Bay, arts activities at Tynemouth Station and free street entertainment.
“We are thrilled to welcome Paul Weller to our tenth anniversary”
The festival, which has previously showcased artists including The Script, The Wanted and Scouting for Girls over the last decade sees UK rock band Lawson play Tynemouth Priory and Castle on Friday 11 July and ‘The Modfather’ himself Paul Weller will perform a sold out show there on Saturday 12 July.
The line-up on Sunday 13 July includes Acid Jazz veterans The Brand New Heavies, Toploader, The Neville Staple Band + Jen Stevens and The Hiccups. North East singer-songwriter Nadine Shah returns to the Playhouse Whitley Bay on Wednesday 9 July, Texan folk-rockers Midlake will play there on Thursday 10 July and punk poet John Cooper Clark will take to the stage on Wednesday 16 July.
There will be a host of local talent on the bill too including the winners of a youth music competition held a week earlier at Segedunum Roman Fort and Museum. We will also see the return of free international street entertainment, jazz stage and children’s pageant. Performers from around the world will take to Tynemouth Front Street to entertain the crowds while there will also be a varied programme of dance and arts attractions at Tynemouth Station.
