Lindisfarne Christmas concert returns to "save" City Hall

They were some of Newcastle City Hall's most memorable performances.

For 17 years the band Lindisfarne performed their legendary Christmas concerts.

But they stopped in 1993.

Ever since, joint lead singer Ray Jackson has turned down numerous requests to recreate the show.

But the Christmas concert will return this year - for a special purpose, as Look North's Keith Akehurst reports.
