All Aboard the Tall Ships!

Up to thirty tall ships will visit Blyth over the August bank holiday weekend (Friday 26 – Monday 29). The Port of Blyth is to host the North Sea Tall Ships Regatta. Hundreds of thousands of visitors are expected to converge on the south Northumberland port to view up close – and in some cases board – some of the biggest vessels in their class. Food and drink, stalls, nightly firework displays and live music are all part of the celebrations.
Jazz will play its part during the weekend ranging from the Dixieland jazz of the Vieux Carré Jazzmen to the Charlie Christian inspired ‘swing jazz guitar’ of local Blyth Valley guitarist Anth Purdy to the biggest of big bands, the Tyne Valley Big Band. See the right-hand column gig list for day-by-day details. It’s all free!
