Great Northumberland 2018 is 56 days of free arts, culture and heritage events in Northumberland. Northumberland is a place unlike anywhere in England, with unique traditions and culture. It is a place of rich heritage to explore, a place where history comes to life, but it is also a forward-looking county, embracing and looking to the future with digital and environmental innovation.

Music, dance and art will meet the 21st century throughout the 56 days weeks of events over the summer. From castles and heritage sites, cycle routes, beaches, coastal walks, theatre, music, film, exhibitions and adventure, there truly is something for everyone in Northumberland.
