Grabbing my big winter parka this morning, I sighed feeling a bit sorry that autumn was actually here and the summer was officially over, no more sunny late nights, or sunday bbq's with friends or dancing in fields wearing shorts and wellies... How wrong I was! This weekend Split Festival returns to the North East and if you were looking for a final chance this year to dig out your festival attire, this is it!
If you don't know much about Split, it's a festival organised by Sunderland's very own The Futureheads and this year to help make the weekend event even bigger and better Sunderland Live have joined forces to put on 'Free Film Friday.'
Held in the gorgeous location that is Ashbrooke Cricket Club, the festival will feature the Friday film day and two days full of music from bands such as Field Music and The Unthanks. Head over to the website now to take advantage of discounted tickets and remember to keep your wristband on, lots of local restaurants, bars and clubs offer discounts during the weekend if you flash them it! Enjoy & don't forget your wellies!
