Stockton’s celebration of music and comedy returns for its second year this May Bank Holiday. Stockton Stages is a four-day extravaganza taking place across Stockton High Street with something that everyone can enjoy.
So far, Stockton Stages has announced a number of headline acts which will take place at renowned venues in Stockton.
Singer-songwriter, Nick Heyward, will be playing at ARC on the Thursday evening as part of his new UK tour – expect pop and new wave vibes and hits from his most recent album, ‘Woodland Echoes’.
King Creosote is another act announced at the time of writing and marks the alternative musician’s first-ever appearance at ARC and, with buzz from publications like Mojo and Sunday Times Culture, he’s not one to be missed.

Stockton Stages, however, have a lot more planned than just music though. Similar to last year’s festival, there will be free entertainment in the High Street for the whole family throughout Friday as well as another free day of live music and comedy on Saturday – expect lots of opportunities for everyone of all ages to get involved.
Saturday evening will also see the next instalment of Mike Mcgrother’s ‘Pub Opera’ which details the story of the remarkable characters and rich heritage of Teesside.
Stockton Stages takes place from Wednesday 30th May until Saturday 2nd June. Tickets for headline acts are individually priced and can be bought from stocktonstages.co.uk with Friday’s entertainment and Saturday’s music on the High Street being free of charge.
