comedian patrick monahan will play at acklam hall summer festival on 3 september

Teessiders will be hoping to enjoy some fun in the sun when Acklam Hall hosts its second annual Summer Festival on Sunday, September 3.

The event will take place within the grounds of Acklam Hall on Hall Drive in Middlesbrough on the same day as the Tees Pride 10k run starts and finishes outside the town’s only Grade I listed building.

The Summer Festival – which is free to enter - will feature live music, comedy from Tees funny man Patrick Monahan, inflatables for children and adults plus food and drink.

Acklam Hall managing director Michael Jones said: “This is a fantastic community event for all the family. Last year, despite the rain, we attracted a fantastic crowd.

“This time we’re hoping the sun comes out and even more people gather for a family occasion with a warm atmosphere.

“It’s perfect for those taking part in the Tees Pride 10k or anyone who is supporting one of the runners, but the whole event is open to the entire Teesside community.”

Live music will be provided by TFM, with their Cash for Kids charity benefiting from fundraising on the day, along with Acklam Hall’s charity of the year, Teesside Hospice.

The event takes place on Sunday, September 3, from 10am to 7pm. Acklam Hall itself will be serving food throughout the day too.
