The Paralympic swimming champion Josef Craig has helped children on Tyneside open a new local landmark.
He opened a wooden amphitheatre at the Bede's World museum in Jarrow.
The structure is a copy of an anglo-saxon auditorium and was designed from archeological remains found nearby.
It will host plays and concerts over the summer.
Children from three schools attend the opening of a new amphitheatre at Bede's World in Jarrow.
The structure recreates a similar one built more than 1,000 years ago at Yeaveringham Auditorium in Northumbria.
