Seas the day

Due to COVID-19 regulations, no events will be going ahead until restrictions are lifted. We can't wait for you to attend our food festivals with celebrity chefs, get into your stride at our walking festivals with fellow hikers, or stargaze at one of our observatories when it is safe to do so.


When governmant guidance allows for it, Northumberland holds a host of fantastic family events. Whether you want to explore tranquil beaches, blooming gardens, enchanting castles, or remote countryside, Northumberland's got you covered with its array of events 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, traditional country shows, guided walks and nature talks; you name it, Northumberland´s got it.
