Annual Wallsend Festival

The Annual Wallsend Community Festival usually takes place on the first weekend of July each year.


The Festival will usually be over two days with the festival carrying forward to the Sunday, when the focus moves from the town centre to a newly renovated Richardson Dees Park, which will host many sporty and outdoor activities.

Key events have previously included



  • The Wallsend Green will see a family focused ‘olde-worlde’ theme take place on Sunday (see details below)
  • The Young Mayor’s Music Event at Segedunum!
  • A variety of dance performances will be held outside and within the Forum Shopping Centre, while a children’s fairground will as usual be set up on High Street East near the Coronation Club.

    I’m the secretary of Wallsend Community Choir. The choir would like to participate in the 2020 Wallsend Festival. In the past we have performed on the festival stage in The Forum for about half an hour.

    I’d be grateful if you could let me know of any time slots when the choir could perform on either the Saturday (any time) or the Sunday afternoon.

    Kind Regards
