South Tyneside Festival 2018



Monsters, myths and magic will herald the start of a summer of entertainment, when the South Tyneside Festival returns

The three-month long event is once again bringing together music and family fun across a whole host of venues in South Shields, cementing it as one of the UK’s biggest free festivals.

The annual Summer Parade will take place on 30 June, when hundreds of youth groups, schools and community organisations will be taking up the theme of monsters, myths and magic, under the artistic direction of South Shields-based Community Interest Company, Creative Seed.

The parade will make its way throughout the town and end at Bents Park, where visitors can enjoy a range of family-friendly activities and live music.

The town’s Sandhaven Amphitheatre will be the venue for a whole range of performances, with live music every Thursday and Saturday evening from 2 – 23 June.

It will also host brass band concerts every Sunday afternoon from June through to August, apart from 1 July, when music lovers can enjoy Proms in the Park which this year will move to Bents Park.

Bents Park will once again be hosting the extremely popular Sunday concerts on 8,15,22 and 29 July, with the promise of big names to follow in the footsteps of the previous acts who have taken to the stage.                                                                                                         

Parents worried how to keep their young ones amused throughout the long holiday will also be relieved to know that the Kids Fun-Fest is also returning to the amphitheatre, with activities every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon from 2 – 23 August.

The latest news can be found at, at South Tyneside Events on Facebook and on twitter @STynesideEvents.
