The Alnwick Garden and Magnetic North East play host to a marvellous array of Northumbrian traditions over the next few weekends as part of the Great Exhibition of the North! #GetNorth2018
Our events kick off this Sunday 22nd July, with Northumbrian piping from 10am to open the gardens. The Northumbrian piper will be serenading throughout the day, in the cafe, the tree-house and around the gardens.
Visitors of all ages are invited to take part in our fabulous family ceilidh with the Windy Gyle Band from 12-2pm in the Pavillion.
We are also very lucky to have a fantastic range of young musicians who are going to be busking in various places throughout the gardens. Please show your support for their good causes if you can spare a few pennies. Look out for them in the ornamental garden, the tree house, the rose garden, the cafe, the crafty cottage and the garden shop.
All of our events are included in the price of a day ticket to the gardens - so come along and get stuck in!
If you're unable to make it along this Sunday, we're hosting plenty more music and dancing on the following days - 22nd July, 29th July, 4th August & 11th August 2018!
Our family ceilidhs will be lead by the wonderful King Cole Ceilidh band for our August dates, and our big finale will see the spectacular Star and Shadow rapper bring to the gardens their acrobatic routines!
Come along on Saturday 11th August to hear some tall tales from our story-teller and balladeer, plus music from our charismatic roaming musicians! You can also try your hand at the Northumbrian small-pipes with Paul Knox from King Cole!
