More than 100,000 people are expected to flock to Blyth for this weekend's free event, with more than 20 magnificent Tall Ships berthed at the quayside and one-and-a-half miles of fabulous entertainment for all the family.

It's the biggest event Northumberland has ever hosted, climaxing tomorrow with a spectacular Parade of Sail at 2pm when the ships set off for a 500-nautical-mile journey to Gothenburg in Sweden.

Youngsters enjoy the entertainment.
