Art, crafts and performance feature prominently in the Berwick 900 programme of activities and events.

“Tidal” in July was a series of outdoor performances inspired by the sea, river and bridges.

In October, London-based Strongback Productions staged “Wait and Sea”, which was a celebration of Berwick’s musical heritage. The October programme also features the 2nd Berwick Literary Festival, a special production by Northumberland Theatre Company in association with the Wilson’s Tales Group and “The Great Performing Rope”, an intriguing community project directed by November Club.

The official programme ended with “The Arty-Facts Show”, which showcased the skills and imagination of local artists and craftspeople inspired by all the elements of the Berwick 900 Festival.
