Hundreds enjoy St Nicholas Festival – Video

Hundreds of people descended on Whitley Bay town centre last Friday for the start of the annual St Nicholas Festival.

The festival kicked off with a children’s lamp-lit procession from Marine Park First School to St Paul’s Church for the switching on of the lights.

And traders were in the town centre on Friday and Saturday selling a wide range of products.

The event ended on Sunday with a Christmas fair inside the Spanish City Dome, where Santa popped in to see local children.
