It will run Friday, June 17 until Sunday, June 19.

Ian Cave, chair of the Tynedale Beer and Cider Festival committee, said: "After the uncertainties around the pandemic, it's great for the festival to be back at Tynedale Park this June. We have an amazing array of beers and ciders on offer, along with a brilliant programme of live music, street food and more.

"We hope to raise even more funds for the good causes that we support which this year are The People’s Kitchen, Tynedale Hospice at Home and The Hextol Foundation."

There is also a focus on music, with 12 acts performing live over the weekend.

A new scheme titled 'The Big Gig' will bring seven young musicians and bands to the stage on Saturday.

Street food vendors will attend the event, and there will be family friendly activities including magicians.

Dogs are welcome but must be kept on a lead.
