All events are free or “pay what you feel,” which means all families can take part in the events.

The theme of the weekend is celebrating 70 years of vibrant community and culture in North Shields as part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

The Exchange’s new General Manager, Christine Lee, said: “Since joining the team at The Exchange Theatre in January, I’ve been looking forward to flinging open the doors for a party that is for everyone from our local communities.

“The long Jubilee weekend feels like a brilliant excuse to gather and to celebrate everything that’s brilliant about culture in North Shields – and there’s a huge amount to shout about.”
