That’ll be the day when Buddy is in town

SHOPPERS in one borough town centre will be able to make a ‘spectacle’ of themselves as they go looking for a Buddy.

Day 8 Productions and the cast of ‘Buddy Holly’ will be entertaining shoppers and giving away free pairs of Buddy-Holly style glasses.

They will be in the Park View Shopping Centre, Whitley Bay, on Saturday, from 11am to noon – ahead of their forthcoming show at Playhouse Whitley Bay.

Elsewhere, birds of prey will be featuring in a falconry display along Bedford Street, North Shields, between 10am and noon, and on the bandstand outside the Forum Shopping Centre, Wallsend, between 1pm and 3pm.

There will be a steppe eagle and a turkey vulture amongst the display.
