Wallsend-born Sting, one of the world’s leading musical icons, is back in the North East today to perform at a unique concert event.

It is in support of the Dreamflight charity - benefitting local children with life limiting conditions.

The concert is being staged at Bamburgh Castle this evening.

Sting will play what is described as 'an exclusive, one off acoustic concert in the stunning surroundings of the King’s Hall'.

Bamburgh Castle in Northumberland has chosen Dreamflight as their nominated charity for 2017 and the concert will be the culmination of a year of fundraising efforts for the charity, which has included an abseil from the top of the castle.

"I’m very much looking forward to returning to Northumbria to perform at Bamburgh Castle and am happy to help support Dreamflight's important work."
