It's been two decades since Lindisfarne have performed at Newcastle City Hall over Christmas. This year, they are reuniting for a show to support the City Hall which is under threat amid council cuts. Queues were down the street when the box office opened, and they sold 1,000 tickets in 60 minutes.
Lindisfarne's Ray Jackson is inviting anyone who has ever played with the band to reunite for a Christmas show. The performance is aimed at highlighting the importance of Newcastle City Hall, which is under threat because of council cuts.
Lindisfarne fans have welcomed the news that the band are putting on a Christmas show this year. The box office sold 1,000 tickets in just an hour.
Lindisfarne's Ray Jackson is helping with the campaign to save Newcastle City Hall. Big council cuts have left its future as a music venue in doubt, and Ray says the only way to keep it going is to use it.
The group performed at Newcastle City Hall every Christmass between 1976 and 1990. Now, members are coming back together in an attempt to show people just how valuable the City Hall is.
Ray Jackson and his Lindisfarne bandmates will put on a Christmas show on 23rd December, after a 20 year break. It will be held at Newcastle City Hall.
