Getting HERE

Belford can be found 1/2 mile off the A1

15 minutes between Berwick up north, and Alnwick to the south.

It is 10 minutes inland from Bamburgh and the Coast and 15 minutes east of Wooler and the Cheviots. 

Ideally placed for a right good festival for Northumbrians, Border Folk, the Toonies and Tourists.


Our festival takes place in venues and locations across the whole village.

It's a village takeover if you will!

SO we recommend parking and walking where ever possible.

On street parking is available in the village. 


As our festival takes place in venues and locations across the village we recommend that anyone with limited mobility drive between venues as on street parking should be available nearby.

Most of our venues are wheelchair friendly although some will require support to navigate small lips.


Please ask for support if you need it.

Accessible toilets can be found at Bell View, Sunnyhills and the Blue Bell Hotel.


To help you navigate all that the festival has to offer: its artists, makers, performances, activities, locations, pubs and eateries you can purchase

a festival programme for £2.

This brochure will be on sale at Welcome Points located in the village on festival weekend 13th & 14th July

(or for pre-sale from Belford Newsagents around the end of June/beginning of July 2024)


The brochure includes a welcome note, articles about our projects, a map, artist index, evaluation form and timetable.

All proceeds are considered donations and go towards next year's festival. Any support is hugely appreciated!
