Vintage Easter weekend lined up

A vintage festival is set to take over a Northumberland village this weekend for an alternative Easter by the sea.

According to organisers, local bed and breakfasts and caravan parks have been booked up for weeks as final preparations are underway for Vintage Newbiggin.

On Saturday, hair and beauty makeovers and dance workshops are available to help get ready for the Black and Gold Vintage Ball, at the sports and community centre at 7.30pm.

Sunday is all about a traditional family day out at the seaside with rides, walks, ice creams and music at the town’s bandstand.

Monday will see a classic car rally along Front Street, while a very diverse collection of vintage market traders bring style and nostalgia to the town.
