Festive Shindig draws crowds to Legion

Festive ShindigOn Friday 29th November, a festive shindig was held at the Jesmond Legion, with craft items sold in the afternoon and a concert held in the evening. The event, which was organised by Louise Parker, began around 3:30pm.  It featured about 11 stalls selling handmade art, cards, accessories and candies.  Also, local beers and Scottish beers were sold in jars. The festive mood continued into the evening when at 7:30pm a small concert began.  Three local bands took the stage, performing for an hour each.  The bands included Clockwork Elephant, Sky Rush and Pikey Beatz. A crowd of onlookers cheerfully sipped beers and danced as the night dwindled down. Additional reporting by Alex Jorge Canal
