Although the lockdown means we can’t venture out in numbers for a while, we can at least enjoy these memories of beer festivals in the South Tyneside area.
We have 11 archive photographs to share with you and perhaps you are pictured in one of them.
Take a look and re-live the memories, and why not get in touch to tell us more.
