The Newcastle Gateshead Quayside was full of festive fun on Sunday, with a Santa River Dash.

Many Santa’s lined the iconic Quayside river in colourful canoes to spread some festive cheer to those enjoying a stroll along the Quayside on Sunday, famous of course for its Sunday Market.

Passers by enjoyed seeing Father Christmas’ friends as they enjoyed a festive treat and a browse, while admiring the river view, from the Millennium Bridge to the Sage to the Tyne Bridge.
