RADIO One’s Folkface took to the stage as part of the first Sunderland Folk Festival.

The comedy band, formed by breakfast show host Chris Moyles’ sidekick Comedy Dave Vitty and newsreader Dominic Byrne visited the city to perform to excited crowds.

The pair have already appeared at Glastonbury this summer.

Dozens of acts kept folk fans entertained during the bank holiday weekend, across a number of venues, including the National Glass Centre.

Sunderland Council said it would like to build on this year’s gathering by making the Folk Festival an annual event.
