Cllr Fay Cunningham said: "It is really important for Boldon Colliery that we resurrect our festival and we are determined that it's going to be bigger and better than it ever was.

"It'll be small beginnings because we are starting more or less from scratch but we are getting a lot of support and we are really excited. It's going to be absolutely brilliant."
