The Brit Award-winning, English singer-songwriter is confirmed as the opening headline artist at the festival, organised by North Tyneside Council, at Tynemouth Priory and Castle on Thursday, July, 5.

Her number one album The Architect is currently riding high in the charts, with eight weeks in the top ten and fast approaching sales of 250,000.

And her new album is currently on course to become her fourth double platinum album in a row, which would make her the first British woman in chart history to achieve this.
