Winter - What's on

Once the days become shorter and winter sets in, we still have a full programme of events at the Maltings Arts Centre and Theatre (all year round) and look forward to Christmas in Berwick, with traditional festive events and Christmas shopping opportunities to enjoy.

The Christmas festivities begin in Berwick-upon-Tweed with the switching on of the Christmas Lights at the end of November. Followed by Berwick Rotary Christmas market where Christmas shoppers can enjoy live musical entertainment while perusing craft and gift stalls. Paxton House Christmas Cracker event is another popular Christmas shopping event and Spittal Christmas Fair is one for all the family, with a very special appearance by Santa!

There are also beautiful walks around the town walls and on the Lowry Trail, which are open all year and allow visitors to see the effect the changing seasons have on our historic town.

If you’re planning to visit Northumberland during the winter months are year-round castles (Bamburgh and Lindisfarne are open at weekends) and attractions have their own event programmes to keep everyone entertained. Contact the Tourist Information Centre for further information.
