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


Arty-Facts is the element of Berwick 900 that encourages local people of all ages, skills and abilities to join us in creating pieces of art, craft-work, costumes and props linked to the Berwick 900 story themes that will be displayed or used at events throughout this year’s Festival and beyond.

Berwick 900 has engaged local artist Tony Johnson to design an illustrated Timeline depicting key events, topics and periods in Berwick’s history from 1115 to 2015.  We are inviting artists, craftspeople, schools and community groups in the Berwick area to create art and craftwork inspired by characters, events and themes shown in these scenes.

Here is a list of the Berwick 900 Timeline key events
