The Alnwick International Musical festival has been alive in Alnwick since 1976. The top photo shows the festival street parade in 1985. T
he picture beneath shows the Whalley Junior Band from Surrey, British Columbia, Canada, whose first visit in 1976 led to the founding of the festival.
Lately at the Gazette, we have been in contact with the festival organisers, and they are interested in photos from the first Alnwick Music Festival in 1976 or around that time. If you have any and would like to share them, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
