The owner of a major North East music event has hailed it for delivering a major boost to the region, contributing £10m to the region’s business economy over the last decade.

The event, staged at Hardwick Hall in Sedgefield, marks its 10th anniversary this year having grown to become one of the North East’s biggest live musical gatherings. Founder and owner John Adamson – director of Ramside Estates which owns Hardwick Hall and Ramside Hall amongst other resorts in the region – said the festival has employed an estimated 3,000 people over nine events, with the firm having to cancel the 2020 event due to Covid restrictions.
