Mouth of the Tyne
“Tynemouth Priory is a stunning setting for the Mouth of the Tyne Festival”
The Mouth of the Tyne Festival takes place in the picturesque conservation status village of Tynemouth in North Tyneside 8 miles east of Newcastle upon Tyne. It is a four day cultural celebration of live music, dance and arts by the sea and attracts around 100,000 people. The village chippy has a blue plaque in the window to celebrate the fact that Jimi Hendrix ate there.
Ticketed live music concerts take place in the stunning grounds of English Heritage property Tynemouth Priory and Castle. Local street food pop- ups trade under festoon lighting whilst customers gather around shipping bobbins and on reclaimed driftwood seats. There’s a jazz stage outside the Priory next to a pub overlooking the sea. A free programme of international street theatre provides the entertainment.
