POP legends The Human League will kick off this year’s Mouth of the Tyne Festival.

Best known for hits such as Don’t You Want Me, Mirror Man, Fascination, Love Action and Together in Electric Dreams, they have sold more than 20 million records.

They will be performing at the Tynemouth Priory and Castle on Friday, July 12.

And they join Brit Award-winner James Morrison – making his second visit to the festival – as part of the weekend line-up as he will be at the Priory on the following night.

The festival features four days of live music, theatrical entertainment and special one-off performances in the village.

It is being supported by Kier North Tyneside.

Kier regional director Mike Furze said: “At Kier, we are actively involved with local communities and it is a great honour to be able to play a part in the Mouth of the Tyne Festival for a third year running.

“It looks like the people of North Tyneside will be in for a treat in July.”
