Following the success of last year's Tall Ships' Regatta at Blyth, a consortium of local organisations have arranged the Blyth Maritime Festival on the weekend of 3rd and 4th June
It is not intended to be a replacement for the Tall Ships Regatta, but it hopes to grow of the success of the event.
The consortium includes Blyth Tall Ship, Port of Blyth and the Blyth Development Trust. Blyth Town Council is not directly involved, but we will help where possible.
BTC funding has been requested, and a decision on this will be made at the February meeting of the Events Committee
I am sure that the event will be popular, and hope that we can work in partnership with the consortium.
Further details will follow, but in the meantime make a note in your diary.
