For the third year running the team from Stratstone Tyneside BMW is backing the event, which attracts thousands of visitors to the town.

After the success of last year’s event with Bridge Street taking on a full road closure for the day – plans are well underway to make this year’s festival bigger and better than ever before. The event will run from 9am to 4pm.

The festival committee is planning a packed day of entertainment including live music, face-painting and the ever-popular demonstration kitchen where local chefs will be showcasing their culinary skills throughout the day. There will also be nearly 100 food and drink stalls.

David Guy, Head of Business from Stratstone Tyneside BMW, said: “We are delighted to be supporting this fantastic event for the third year running. We have had the privilege of being able to watch the festival grow year on year and turn in to a fantastic family event.”

Stratstone Tyneside will be showcasing a selection of their cars on the day of the festival with their knowledgeable team on hand.
