The organisers of a music and camping event in Northumberland are offering half-price tickets to fans who were left disappointed by the Sir Tom Jones concert fiasco in Alnwick.

The Lindisfarne Festival takes place from Friday, September 4, to Sunday, September 6, and the spectacle will feature live music, DJs, street food and workshops, among other things.

Conleth Maenpaa, of Nokomis and Bor Events, and founder of the Lindisfarne Festival which is not organised by or affiliated with Loose Cannon Events, said: “We wanted to create a special offer for those that recently attended the Tom Jones concert in Alnwick and to give them an opportunity to come along to another music event in Northumberland.

“The Lindisfarne festival really does have something for everyone with music from a range of genres.”

Around 100 half-price tickets are on offer to those who attended Sir Tom’s concert. The tickets are for either the full weekend (includes two nights camping, Friday and Saturday, full price £78 each) or for the Saturday (includes one night camping on Saturday, full price £50 each).

The half-price tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis and limited to two tickets per person.

To redeem the offer, people will need to email info@lindisfarnefestival.com with proof or receipt of their ticket purchase for the Pastures gig.

They will then be provided with a special 50 per cent off code to purchase tickets to Lindisfarne Festival.

The festival takes place at Beal Farm and is an over-18s event. It will host to local and world-renowned musicians and DJs who will be performing an eclectic mix of indie, funk, rock and folk. The main headline acts are Reverend and The Makers, soap star Craig Charles and Public Service Broadcasting.

A car-parking charge will apply. People can bring food/drink into the camping area, but not onto the festival site. Food and drink stalls will be available. Visit lindis farnefestival.com
