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.
