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


Do you have historical family associations with Berwick-upon-Tweed at some time during the past nine hundred years?

Berwick 900 is working with Berwick Record Office to investigate and foster links worldwide with descendants of families that have historical associations with the town.

If you have any interesting stories or information about your family’s connection with Berwick, Tweedmouth or Spittal in the past, please contact us at berwickfamilies@gmail.com

Supported by the Guild of Freemen of Berwick, we are involving local volunteers in identifying a selection of family names and gathering interesting stories about individuals associated with the themes of the Berwick 900 programme in 2015.  

The information gathered will be incorporated into the activities and events throughout the Berwick 900 programme and used to encourage visitors to come to Berwick-upon-Tweed during the Berwick 900 Festival in 2015 and beyond.
