A popular pub will celebrate being part of the community for a decade later this month as it looks to welcome regulars and occasional visitors to the venue for a mini-festival.

The team at the Stag & Monkey in Hartlepool, are celebrating a ten-year milestone in the community by hosting their own mini festival – Stag Fest.

The one-day event on April 27 will run from 11am until 8pm outside in the beer garden, and 8pm and 12am inside the pub and includes a host of live bands and DJs throughout the day.

According to the venue "There’s fun for all ages with a face painter for children and adults alike, and for some serious festival vibes there will be an outdoor bar and a delicious BBQ."

The fun doesn’t stop there, as a giant outdoor TV will be showing live sports during the day and into the evening, for those wanting to watch sport.

Live bands include V12, one of the best party bands in the Northeast and Dali will be onsite to deliver an acoustic session for guests.

The Stag & Monkey team will also be raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support throughout the day with other fun activities for everyone to enjoy.
