This year’s festival dates: Saturday 4th to Saturday 11th August 2018

Once again Alnwick enjoyed eight days of creative musical talent reflecting the diverse cultural riches of the UK and wider world.

We featured a cornucopia of talent representing the sounds, rhythms and traditions of Ireland, Eastern Europe, Africa, USA, Australia, Scotland, England and our very own Northumberland.

This was served up via the genres of  Folk, Jazz, Blues, Celtic, Balkan, Americana and World Fusion - and live poetry.

For more details of this year’s artists and groups see our Performers and Northumberland & UK pages.  We aim to cover a similar range in our plans for 2018.

A lively programme of evening concerts and events will again be offered  in 2018 - see our 2017 Evening Events page for a flavour of our 2017 events programme.

Would you like to get involved?

 …the beating heart of Northumberland!
