Bad weather, OMG, and the Jarrow Medieval Fayre
Just don’t complain about the weather!
This was filmed on Sunday 16th. May in Oklahoma City, let’s just pray that the weather in Jarrow this coming weekend will not be anything like as bad.
Largely sunny and warm on Saturday and Sunday but with a risk of an isolated thundery shower.
From the Met Office forecast for the north-east this morning.
I mention this because our new South Tyneside Mayor Cllr. Tom Piggott gets his first big public outing of the year at the Medieval Fayre which is part of the Jarrow Festival on Sunday from 10:00 am till 4:00 pm. This free event is really worth a visit, and for those of you who have a big interest in photography you will find plenty of opportunities as the majority of stall holders and participants will be dressed in period costume and partaking in battle re-enactments, cooking, crafts, weaponry, falconry, and all sorts of other things to entertain. The event is usually held in Druitt’s Park (Charlie’s Park) opposite St. Paul’s Church in Jarrow, and you will also have a good opportunity to have a wander around Bede’s World Museum, which features free entry for the day!
Be warned, if you are travelling from South Shields, Hebburn, or Cleadon and the Boldons, car parking will be at an absolute premium and you may be better off using public transport.
It’s an event that I never miss with my camera! (Is the top one Jim Sewell in his Sunday best?)
However, I’d like to know where all of the Jarrow councillors get to, I cannot say I’ve ever seen any of them there (unless of course they were disguised as serfs).
