Britpop icons, Dodgy, are headlining a day of live music and family fun in South Tyneside this weekend.

The group, who rose to fame in the 1990s with hits such as If You’re Thinking of Me, Staying Out for the Summer and top five smash, Good Enough, will be performing at the Amphitheatre, South Shields, on Saturday, from 7pm to 9pm.

Before that, visitors will have the chance to enjoy more live music and entertainment for all ages with an afternoon Summer Fayre in nearby Bents Park.

This includes performances by The Drum Young Orchestra, State Express Five, Benfield Morris Dancers, ST Gymnastics Club and The Sour Dogs, as well as an Olympic-style obstacle course and a variety of stalls.

Both events, which are free to attend, form part of the South Tyneside Festival, organised annually by South Tyneside Council.

The gig ends the festival’s month-long Amphitheatre Live Music programme, which has welcomed performers from across the North East since the start of June.
