There are any number of reasons to come to Alnmouth, but if you want to time your visit with one of our calendar events, 2013 is shaping up like this:
Arts Festival 29th – 30th June
Dozens of artists, photographers and craftspeople exhibiting the best of Northumbrian creativity across 30 different venues around the village.
Raft Race 10th August
A race from the Duchess Bridge down the Aln to the Ferry Hut. Teams compete in fancy dress, money raised goes to the RNLI.
Volcano Night ?? August
Build the biggest sandcastle that you can on the beach. Then build a bonfire on top of the sandcastle. As evening falls and the tide turns, the bonfires are set alight…last fire still burning is the winner. Simple!
Red Lion Beer Festival 11th – 13th October
Local ale. Local beer. Local cider. Local bands playing in the Marquee. Local people with very sore heads for the next week…
