Station is holding some summer fun

Family fun is continuing at Tynemouth Station over the summer.

A Mind Sports Festival is taking place until Friday, August 8, from noon to 5pm daily, when people of all ages can take part in a wide selection of games including Draughts, Chess, Mah-Jong, Stratego, Backgammon, Scrabble and more.

Giant games will be set out across the platform, with tutors on hand to pass on useful tips to novices.

Then from Monday, August 11 to Friday, August 15, Star Wars fans will be gathering at the recently restored station, between 10am and 4pm each day.

Fans can get up close to life-size Star Wars models with photo opportunities from a galaxy far, far away. Characters include C3P0, R2D2 and Darth Vader.
