Great Northumberland 2018 - What's On Guide


Great Northumberland was inspired by the Great Exhibition of the North and showcases the best that Northumberland has to offer.

The eight-week extravaganza started on Saturday 7 July with a spectacular showcase event in Hexham, and culminated in Berwick on Saturday 1 September with a celebration of the unique musical traditions of the county, including the debut performance of a newly-commissioned song ‘The Great Song of the North’.

Even though the summer programme for GN18 has come to an end, there is still plenty to see and do in the great county of Northumberland. Select a date on the calendar to see all events across the county and view some of our favourite events below.
