**Thank you**

We’d like to say a big thanks to everyone who came to support this years event! It was a fantastic three days of great beers, food, music and of course sunshine!

We couldn’t have done all of this without the hard work of all our volunteer staff. If you didn’t already know, the whole event is organised and staffed by a team of volunteers from Gateshead Rugby club.

Thank you to Northern Productions Ltd for an amazing job on the music & lighting!

Thanks to all of the bands who performed brilliantly this weekend! Even with the sunshine to compete with they still pulled folk into the tent!

A shout out to all of our local suppliers who helped keep us stocked up this year!

As always the sponsors are a critical part of helping get the festival up and running, thank you so much to all of you that supported us this year. It was also brilliant to meet many of you across the weekend.

Thanks again for your support and here’s to our tenth Anniversary festival in 2019.
