Don't Miss This!
Alnwick’s historic marketplace is set to be transformed into an open-air venue for around 200 people this Sunday for Alnwick Alive – a programme of free entertainment with a strong regional flavour and a Northumbrian focus. Local professionals, amateur artists, community groups, bands, choirs and dancers are set to deliver a range of performances, all with one goal: to promote traditional Northumbrian culture, but with a contemporary twist!
On the bill are some of the County’s most-loved acts, including mother and son duo, Carole and Jamie Robb; local community group, Riff Raff and headliners, The Baghdaddies, whose exuberant brand of world music is an exhilarating cocktail of Balkan melodies, ska, Latin grooves and sizzling brass – played with the band’s famous energy and theatrical humour.
Locals and visitors alike are encouraged to get involved in Alnwick Alive on Sunday 12 August from 10:30am – 4:30pm at Market Place, Alnwick, NE66 1HS.
