Northumberland Miners Picnic
Saturday 8th June, 10am-5pm.
This fantastic family day out is jam-packed with things to see and do.
The Pityard Stage celebrates Northumberland's unique culture with a rolling programme of traditional and contemporary performance. We are delighted to present a one-off performance from celebrated North East folk star Bridie Jackson and the Arbour. Listen to classics performed by Ashington Brass Band and enjoy displays of Morris, Clog and Irish dance.
Join the International Ministry of Play and It's Playtime on board the Festival of the North East bus with fun for the whole family. Football fans of all ages can join NUFC's Toon Times Team as they bring footballing history to life through object handling, memory sharing and craft activities.
And don't miss Anniversary - an act of memory, a collective recitation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights with artist Monica Ross and volunteer co-recitors. Visit www.actsofmemory.net for more information.
Browse regional produce in our food and craft fair, take a ride on the narrow guage train, enjoy face painting, a bouncy castle and much, much more!
This weekend is your last chance to catch the fabulous Dressing the Stars film costume exhibition, and Captain Jack Sparrow himself will be here to delight and entertain throughout the day!
