This year’s ‘26 Ways to Green’ carnival will see young promenaders focus on the environment on our doorstep - featuring land, sea, air and the utopia.
Expect extravagant costumes, flags of hope, giant parade structures, families, artists and musicians all exploring ways to be green.
The parade starts at Whitley Bay Metro Station at 4pm. It will make its way along Station Road, Whitley Road, Park View and Marine Avenue to the Links and Spanish City Plaza before finishing on the central lower promenade.
Carnival favourites Meze Mundo, The Baghdaddies, Drumdin, Baque De Ogum and guests Spark LED drummers will be adding the rhythm and music to the parade along with community street bands The Spanish City Rollers and Big Noise drummers.
Produced by SALTo Arts Productions in partnership with Whitley Bay Big Local, Creative Civic Change and North Tyneside Council. Supported by Arts Council England, Big Lottery and local businesses Pantrinis, Di Meo’s Ices and Fishermans Bay.
