Twisterella Magic Moments

  How was your Twisterella? In the week leading up to an all day festival, Songs From Northern Britain, I thought I would pause and look back a month over this year\'s Twisterella. So, while you are preparing for a day of Anglo-Scottish musical exchange at the Georgian Theatre this Saturday, take a few moments to remember what I reckon was a vintage all dayer in the Boro. There were so many highlights and here are a few of mine. With the help of photos from Tracy Hyman. One Saturday a ....

Top Time At Twisterella

  What a mind-blowingly brilliant festival. On one Saturday a year the football takes a break to allow music to take centre stage in downtown Middlesbrough.

It has become an Easter staple, now in its 9th year. Advance tickets are so ridiculously cheap offering the chance to see international acts headed by the ....
