Chart-topping James is playing only a handful of dates this year and has chosen the Tynemouth setting to perform hits from his three platinum albums on Saturday 13th July 2013. Tickets cost £25 each plus booking fee go on sale from 9am on Thursday 7th March on the TicketMaster website. North Tyneside Elected Mayor, Linda Arkley said: “I am delighted to welcome James Morrison back to North Tyneside. Securing another high calibre music act for a sixth consecutive year is testament to the event being established as one of the North’s favourite summer festivals. Tourism is worth £243million to the borough’s economy and this festival is a key event in our calendar.”

Best known for the hits ‘You Give Me Something’, ‘Wonderful World’, ‘You Make It Real’ and ‘I Won’t Let You Go’, Warwickshire-born James Morrison is an English singer-songwriter and guitarist who has enjoyed chart-topping success since his rise to fame in 2006.

Tynemouth Blue Reef Aquarium NE30 4JF Exterior

A new marine rescue centre on North Tyneside is set to provide emergency care for sick, injured or abandoned seal pups. The purpose-built facility, at Tynemouth’s Blue Reef Aquarium, will also care for other marine life. The aquarium, working with the animal charity Pawz for Thought, has cared for more that 200 rescued seals over the past 10 years. Growing demand has led to the decision to build a permanent unit.

Due to open in time for the Easter holidays, it will be able to accommodate up to six seal pups. Soundproof windows will enable visitors to view the rescued animals and signs will provide information on a variety of topics, including what to do if a stranded seal is spotted.
