Drinks will be flowing as a popular festival returns for its tenth anniversary.

The tenth Tynemouth Beer Festival will take place from Thursday, September 15, to Saturday, September 17.

Held at Tynemouth Cricket Club, the event will aim to raise money for the club, adjoining Percy Park Rugby Club and this year Stroke North has been selected as the nominated charity.

There will be food stalls on Friday and Saturday, and live music on Friday and Saturday nights.
