Beamish Open Air Museum – 2nd Visit

Rather than rush around trying to see all of Beamish in one day I decided that I would make 3 visits this year and this is the 2nd visit. I concentrated on the old town area and even enjoyed a pint in the pub.  A lovely day out.

Newcastle Hoppings 2018

It’s a Geordie tradition that goes back to 1882 and has for the last 10 years has been an event that is always in my diary to attend as a photographer.  Past years have usually meant walking through a foot of mud as it always rains on Hoppings week but this year saw high temperatures and lots of sunshine, perfect !

Ronington 2018

Ronington this year was a little more stressful to organise after the infamous “Beast from the East” covered the region in snow and meant having to cancel the show.  After regrouping, booking a few different bands and making sure everything was in place it was show time on June 2nd.  Crowd numbers were sadly down on previous years, a combination of the postponement,  holiday season etc but those who did attend witnessed 8 fantastic bands and a solo artist who all gave up their time for this worthwhile event. Thanks to all of the bands, Bakerland studios for proving the backline and all those who helped on the day and in the months preceding.  Lots of photos taken, lots edited and lots more to follow.

Groovetrain – ARC Theatre in Stockton

Tees Valley Arts hosted a fantastic charity fundraiser at ARC Theatre in Stockton and Star Shots were invited along to capture the event.  The evening started with a mind blowing performance by local singer/songwriter Elizabeth Liddle who sang and played piano to a mesmerised audience and received a standing ovation at the end of her set.  The followed acapela group Hedwen who have been on the scene for 25 years and gave some great renditions of some classics along with some self written material.

The stars of the show Groovetrain then followed and gave one of the best performances yet, they just seem to get better all the time. Catch them at a local show or a summer festival.
