The festival was opened recently with the visit of Who singer Roger Daltrey.

Festival director Ema Lea said: “Having Roger Daltrey visit Whitley Bay was a great boost for the 2015 festival.

“It’s brought the attention of a whole new audience to our programme.

“Now we are celebrating our sixth birthday and we offer a packed schedule of exciting screenings and events.”
