Event Location

At the beating cultural heart of the Tees Valley, Stockton-on-Tees has a thriving reputation as a vibrant festival and events Borough.

Whether it’s the world renowned Stockton International Riverside Festival, the live music and comedy of Stockton Stages, or the sporting challenges of the Borough’s Duathlon and Cycling festivals, there’s something for everyone, whatever your age or interest.

Just a short walk from the Simplyhealth Great Tees 10k finish line, there’s the award-winning High Street, where the Stockton Flyer automation makes an appearance every day.

It’s no surprise that such a busy and diverse year-round events programme attracts tens of thousands of people every year.

All of this is set against the stunning backdrop of the famous River Tees, home of the Olympic Standard Tees Barrage International White Water Centre and overlooked by Air Trail – the biggest climbing adventure course of its kind in the UK.
