THE latest Haydon Bridge festival has been labelled as a success by organisers and attendees alike.

In what has become an annual tradition for the village, the football field at Low Hall Park was transformed into a concert venue on Saturday.

Crowds of revellers enjoyed a wide variety of entertainment, featuring the best of local music, food and beer.

Local acts took to the stage from 2pm, while food was provided from pizza truck vendors Fire and Dough and FlipnFast crepes.

In addition, The Railway Hotel and St Cuthbert’s Church provided a barbecue and refreshments.

There was plenty for fans of real ale to enjoy too, with beers from the likes of Allendale Brewery and Twice Brewed Brew House.

Each year, the festival identifies a different charity to donate to, with causes in Tynedale benefitting.

Organisers decided that this years donation was to be spilt between Hexham-based dementia support group Chrysalis, Prostate Cancer UK, and various community groups in Haydon Bridge

Brian Alderson, a member of the organising committee, said: “It went really well, it was a really good day, even though there was a little bit of drizzle!

“Everyone had a great day, there was great music and a good relaxed atmosphere.

“We made well over £2,000 in profit. £1,000 is going to Chrysalis, and the rest is getting spilt between Prostate Cancer UK, the Haydon News, The Get It Together Society, and we’re also making a donation to Shaftoe Trust Primary.”
