NORTHUMBERLAND'S first Festival of the Coast takes place this summer, celebrating the county's 64 miles of coastline, and at its centrepiece will be the arrival of a fleet of vessels sailing in for the UK's only Tall Ships Regatta (August 26-29).
Up to 30 Class A Tall Ships will be on show at the port of Blyth over the August Bank holiday weekend. The four-day regatta will feature 1.5 miles of free family entertainment including theatre, music, parades, and fireworks. The event will end with a race from the Northumberland coast to Gothenburg, Sweden.
The Festival of the Coast will showcase the entire Northumberland coastline, from Berwick-upon-Tweed in the north to Seaton Delaval in the south.
