Boyzlife Headline Blyth Live This Weekend - Press Release

Boyzlife headline Blyth Live this weekend After almost a year in the planning, Blyth beach is once again about to be transformed into the County’s biggest free family festival. With something for the whole family, this weekend, Blyth is the place to be.

The Blyth Live Festival on June 18th will see Boyzlife, a supergroup comprising of Keith Duffy and Brian McFadden, who previously appeared as members of ’90s and ’00s boybands Boyzone and Westlife, play timeless classics such as Flying Without Wings, No Matter What and Love Me for a Reason.

In support will be talented singer-songwriter Imogen, folk-rockers Candi’s Dog, first-class party band, Emerald Thieves, The Rock Choir, cover band Nelson Park, 60’s sounds from F.A.B., acoustic sounds from the four-piece Work in Progress, and the Jen Stevens Duo.

As well as the musical attractions, the festival will have its much looked-forward to array of street theatre, superb food from the county’s finest food suppliers and a family activity area which will keep all ages entertained.

The fun starts at 10 am with the first act on stage at noon and will continue until around 9 pm. The event will be compared by popular BBC Radio Newcastle presenter Steffen Peddie. Parking will be available free by following the event parking signs. The event wouldn’t have been possible without the support of Blyth Town Council who are expecting upwards of 15,000 people to the event.

Warren Taylor, Blyth Town Council Mayor said; “Once again, we are putting Blyth on the map by attracting top quality acts to the town and thanks to the Town Council, there is no charge to the public for what will be a great family day out.”

    New Mayor appointed for Blyth Town Council

    At the Blyth Town Council AGM on 12th May 2022, Councillor Warren Taylor was elected as Mayor for the second time.

    Having enjoyed his time as Mayor in 2019 and 2020, Mayor Taylor said, “I’m delighted and humbled to return to the role of supporting the Council and residents with their work within the community. There are a lot of exciting projects underway in the area, and I will work hard to promote these and the people of Blyth.”

    Mayor Warren Taylor was heavily involved in the Operation Elf campaign created by Blyth Town Council in early 2019. During COVID, the scheme ensured that local children received Christmas gifts and that local food banks could support residents in difficulty when needed. Mayor Taylor, a keen advocate for Charities and community groups, takes over from Mayor Margaret Richardson, who championed Blyth in 2021.

    Councillor Kath Nisbet was also elected as Deputy Mayor and will work closely with Mayor Taylor until May 2023.
