Berwick-upon-Tweed is celebrating 900 years of history … and everyone’s invited!

WELCOME TO BERWICK 900

We are planning an exciting programme of activities and events in Berwick-upon-Tweed, England’s most northerly town ….. and everyone is welcome to join us!

Berwick 900 has something to offer for all ages and interests from traditional annual festivals such as the Riding of The Bounds, Berwick May Fair, Tweedmouth Feast,Spittal Seaside Festival and Berwick Food and Beer Festivals to parades, interactive performances, historical re-enactments and other special events being staged specially for the Berwick 900 celebrations.  Admission to most of the events is free of charge.

The Festival runs from Easter to October and is based on a series of story themes, each of which has one of the town’s annual events at its heart.

Our Logo

Created by local artist Helen Barlow of One Line Studio, Berwick-upon-Tweed, the design is a witty take on the bear and tree that have been incorporated in the town’s coat-of-arms since the Middle Ages.

Incorporated into the ‘tree’ are symbols representing various aspects of Berwick’s story – including the bridges and castle, a swan, a salmon and a horseshoe.
