Crowds gathered in Monkseaton on Friday for a traditional New Year’s knees-up.

The Monkseaton Morrismen performed their annual New Year’s Day dance outside the Ship Inn, in Front Street, followed by dancing inside the pub. They then moved on to the Black Horse and Monkseaton Arms to continue the entertainment.
