14 June 2018

The team at Sanderson Arcade are gearing up to host the first ever “Morpeth’s Got Talent” competition on Saturday 21st July in a bid to find a headline act for this year’s Morpeth Food and Drink Festival.

All ages and musical talents are invited to enter for the chance to win the grand prize of headlining the live music stage at this year’s Morpeth Food & Drink Festival on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th October.

The new Live Music Stage sponsor this year is Morpeth Town Council and the new Morpeth Mayor Cllr Jack Gebhard will be one of the judges for this year’s talent show.

Cllr Gebhard said “We are delighted to be supporting the fantastic local talent we have here in Morpeth and I am honoured to be helping to choose the winner and this year’s Live Music Stage headliner for the Food Festival.”

The Food and Drink Festivals Live Music Stage will be situated just outside Morpeth Chantry and next to the Street Food Quarter. This year’s Street food area includes favourites such as Fat Hippo, The Little Fishy and Tandoori Naan Hut.

The event is organised by the Sanderson Arcade team working with the Morpeth and District Chamber of Trade as well as Northumberland County Council’s market team and other groups and stakeholders in the town. This year’s main sponsor for the festival is Lexus Newcastle.

Sanderson Arcade Centre Manager Joel Plumley said: “Morpeth’s Got Talent will be a great way to kick start the summer holidays this year and we can’t wait to see what musical talent the town has to offer!”
