A local community interest company is inviting locals to help celebrate its birthday this weekend.
Happy Planet Studio and Gallery, in Ilfracombe Gardens, Whitley Bay, marks three years on Saturday.
The weekend will allow visitors to see work on show and find out more.
Happy Planet Studio and Galley is open 9am to 5pm on Saturday and 10am to 4pm on Sunday.
Artist and owner Gail Curry said: “We look forward to welcoming new and regular faces over our birthday weekend.
“We’re encouraging locals to visit, find out who we are and what we do, browse work by 21 North East artists and help us eat our homemade birthday cake. “We’re launching our new website at the weekend too as well as celebrating our chosen charity of the year, The Samaritans.”
