The streets of Whitley Bay will be filled with music and colour at the end of May as the town’s annual carnival enters its second decade.

The 10th anniversary was celebrated in style in 2023, and this year, a successful crowdfunder made sure the event could return to bring people of all ages together for a weekend of carnival shenanigans.

More than 2,000 people are expected to take part in the ‘LEAP’ Carnival parade, which is scheduled for 11am-12.30pm on Saturday, going from Whitley Bay Metro down to The Links, via Station Road.

Throughout the rest of the weekend, there will be performances on outdoor stages as well as on the streets. Performers include Bay Uke, The Baghdaddies, The Chilli Road Band, Bellavana, The Beasts of Silly and Orchestra Mambo international.

The annual Carnival Ball takes place on the Saturday from 6pm-11pm featuring Host Sista Soul, The Samba Reggae All Stars (Mestre Memeu and Sandoval of Olodum
Mestre Pato of TDot Batu and friends), Northern Monkey Brass Band and Tribo.

While the rest of the Carnival is free, tickets for the ball are £10 and available from the Carnival website, where you can also find the full programme.
