A DOG festival is returning this weekend.

The third North East Dog Festival will take place today and tomorrow (September 4 and 5) at Kirkley Hall, near Ponteland.

It comes after last year's event was cancelled due to coronavirus restrictions.

Organisers promise something for everyone - four legged or two legged! With a number of exhibitors, activities and demos taking place throughout the course of the festival.

Tickets are £10 on the gate; 16s and under go free, as do dogs.
