Summer What's On

Seas the Day with Northumberland´s Events

Discover Alnmouth

Cinema Screening at Bamburgh Castle

Your sunglasses are fixed to your head ready for those fleeting moments of sunshine, you have replaced your socks with sandals (hopefully you aren´t wearing both), and you have an ice cream in hand whatever the weather. All of this can only mean one thing… summer is finally here and a holiday in Northumberland is undoubtedly the best way to spend it. 

Whether you want to explore tranquil beaches, blooming gardens, enchanting castles or remote countryside, Northumberland's got you covered with its array of events that are happening across the county. There´s something for foodie families, dog friendly families, theatre fanatics and thrill seekers.

From a wizarding week at Alnwick Castle, to a fresh bread-making workshop at Heatherslaw Corn Mill in Ford and Etal, to magical outdoor theatre productions and cinema screenings at various destinations in Northumberland. Live music will drift through the summer air at small concerts and performances, and plenty of markets will have you filling your bags with local crafts and produce to take home as presents or souvenirs. Festivals, exhibitions, guided walks and nature talks; you name it, Northumberland´s got it.

Just scroll down for a list of events to choose from this summer.
