Security at Mouth of the Tyne Festival: Fans urged to have patience at Tynemouth Priory gigs
Mouth of the Tyne Festival kicks off tonight at Tynemouth Priory and security measures will be in place.
Security measures are the same as in previous years at the Mouth of the Tyne Festival2 and organisers say they hope they won t be too obvious, as has been the case in previous years. No glass is allowed at the Priory concerts and the security team will be doing bag searches and so are asking ticketholders to have a little extra patience while these are carried out.
Mouth Of The Tyne Festival.
To be honest, the public won t see or be aware of most of our security measures as they re designed not to be too obvious, but we ve got a range of things in place to keep people safe, said a North Tyneside Council3 spokesman.
The police have been an integral part of the event since 2005 so they ll be present as always.
As well as Elbow tonight, the Tynemouth Priory events also sees Laura Marling, with King Creosote and Karen Elson on Friday, Tom Odell with Cattle and Cane on Saturday and Billy Ocean with Roachford, Jake Houlsby, Transfigure and Beccy Owen on Sunday.
