The Berwick 900 Festival has now ended,

but this website will continue until Spring 2017.

New images and other material will be added during the next few weeks, until the end of November 2015, so please keep coming back to see more video clips and photographs from the events in our seven-month long programme.

Thank you to everyone who has made Berwick 900 possible.

Without the enthusiastic support and participation of so many people of all ages from our local communities, we could not have staged over 40 events.  Many of these have been organised specially for the Berwick 900 celebrations, while others have been developed around existing events in the town’s annual calendar in association with local organisations and community groups.

A special thanks to the volunteers who helped with stewarding at the events and to the hundreds of artists, craftspeople, musicians and performers who presented the displays and activities.

As an example of the effort the town and its people put into this celebration of our history and cultural heritage, here are a few facts about the Festival programme:
