Alex Wallace posted on Facebook on the 17th September :-  East Bedlington Parish Council have determined to support the very popular Live Music Festival held at Gallagher Park, subject to funding for the next 3 years but we need to change the name. Please help by clicking the link and voting by 12 noon Wednesday 26th September.

Today he followed up with :-  It was announced this evening with over 1,000 voting, more than 3-1 for it to be rebranded as Gallagher Park Live. Northumberland will have to fit in somewhere to get it onto social media. The chair informed those present Northumberland county Council were no longer involved and 1 of the 4 tendering for the event held the name so we were unable to continue for 2 legitimate reasons. In addition -an exclusive- put the date in your diary Saturday 27th July 2019. It’s on!

Gallagher Park Live Music Festival

Gallagher Park Live Music Festival

Bedlington Gallagher Park

Bedlington’s fabulous free festival GALLAGHER PARK LIVE MUSIC FESTIVAL is confirmed for Saturday 27th July 2019!
Headlined by Matt Cardle last year, the music festival returns to the North East. It’s everything you would expect from a festival including a wide variety of bands and entertainment to entertain all the family along with fantastic local food. 
Headlining the festival this year are THE SOUTH (featuring members of The Beautiful South), along with teenage idol CHLOE ROSE, JACK & TIM and CBeebies presenter SID SLOANE!

Celebrating their 10th year anniversary and 30 years since The Beautiful South released ‘Song For Whoever’, The South are an impressive 9 piece band who feature former members of The Beautiful South including singer Alison Wheeler and lifelong sax player Gaz Birtles. Since Dave Hemingway, the original singer, left the group at the end of 2016, Gaz has moved across to front the band with Alison and taken on vocal duties. They play the songs made famous by The Beautiful South and bring back the full flavour and arrangements with this exciting live band. 
After a successful year of touring the theatres and festivals of the UK up and down the country, The South are keeping alive all those timeless songs - A Little Time (the number one single), Perfect 10, Rotterdam, Song For Whoever, Old Red Eyes Is Back, Good as Gold, Don't Marry Her plus many more singles and album tracks as well as a few choice South originals. All performed again live, these songs span an impressive 20 year career starting way back in 1989! 
Come on! Let’s Carry On… Regardless!

East Bedlington Parish Council Chariman Keith Grimes said, “This fabulous festival formally known as Northumberland Live Bedlington is back with a new name and a new look taking place at Gallagher Park in Bedlington this Summer, where we are thrilled to welcome The South as being our headline act this year having recently completed a successful Spring 2019 UK tour, alongside Chloe Rose and CBeebies presenter Sid Sloane. This festival is suitable for all members of the family.

    • A festive operation aimed at tackling crime and disorder in Sunderland city centre has been hailed a success after crime rates plummeted by 16%.
      Business leaders on Wearside joined Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner Kim McGuinness in praising the impact of Operation Kraken after the initiative led to a significant drop in recorded crime.
      Spearheaded by Sergeant Maria Ord and the city centre neighbourhood team, the annual festive crackdown was again run in partnership with the Bridges and Sunderland Business Improvement District (BID), along with Sunderland City Council.
      From November 25 through until Christmas Eve, the initiative saw uniformed and plain-clothed officers target all city centre criminality, specifically adult anti-social behaviour and retail-related offences.
      Now, after the 2019 Kraken operation showed a 16% decrease in city centre crime compared to the previous year, Sgt Ord hopes to build on those successes in the coming months.
      "We are delighted with how Operation Kraken went," Sgt Ord said. "The initiative was about maintaining a hassle-free and safe environment which allowed families to enjoy everything this city has to offer during the lead-up to Christmas.
