New guide tells of events in county

A guide has been released with information on festival and events in Northumberland throughout the year.

Northumberland County Council has compiled the new guide for 2013, which offers information on a range of walks, shows, historical re-enactments, arts events, fetes and exhibitions across the county.

Featured events include Berwick’s Riding of the Bounds, Haltwhistle Walking Festival, 46th Morpeth Northumbrian Gathering and Alnmouth Arts Festival.

This year’s Festival of the North East and the Flodden 500 celebrations will be among the highlights of the year.

The leaflet directs residents and visitors to a dedicated website where local events and festivals will be publicised.

A council spokesman said: “Northumberland is an area with a rich cultural heritage with a huge range of festivals and events taking place throughout the year, from traditional music festivals and country shows to food festivals and sporting events.”

The guide is available from tourist information centres across the county and is available to download oatn
