A VARIETY of street performers captured the imagination of people of all ages in Tynemouth at the Mouth of the Tyne Festival.
From face painting, to fire eating and sword swallowing, there really was something for everyone as Front Street quickly filled up with families and visitors ahead of The Wanted performing at the Priory tonight.
The performers came from far and wide, with one act, Juicy Lucy coming all the way from Paris to take part in the festival, while another made the journey from Amsterdam.
Large circles formed around the areas the acts were performing and some children even got involved with the performers, holding items for them as they performed magic tricks or told jokes.
The Mouth of the Tyne Festival continues on Sunday, with more street performers expected to pack out Front Street.
