A six-week programme of entertainment is set to take place at Tynemouth Station.
Events will take place every weekday between July 22 and August 30.
Activities include circus workshops, under fives mornings, jazz in the afternoon, a mind sports festival, a week of children’s theatre and one-off events like urban dance sessions, Doctor Who props and a Harry Potter-themed roadshow.
Coun Eddie Darke, cabinet member for leisure, culture and tourism, said: “We’ve lined up a mostly free programme of entertainment in Tynemouth Station this summer and I’m sure it will prove popular with many people.”
A full programme is available from North Shields and Whitley Bay Tourist Information Centres or online at www.visitnorthtyneside.com
