The South Tyneside Summer Festival promises to be music to the ears of anyone looking to be entertained during the summer months.

Open-air concerts, street theatre, family fun and a spectacular parade celebrates the whole event in style.

The fabulous festival lasts all summer long and is jam-packed with big-name stars from around the world of music, plus local performers, family fun days and plenty more to keep you entertained.

At the heart of the festival are the now legendary Sunday concerts, a sensational series of open-air music performances taking place on Sundays throughout July.

All of these fantastic events are free of charge and in the gorgeous seafront setting of South Shields. As the summer draws to an end, cheer on the 50,000 runners as they cross the seaside finishing line of the Great North Run.
