Music continues into the night as Playhouse hosts evening concerts

As the day-time performances draw to a close, the music festival continues into the night at Alnwick Playhouse.

Festival fans will be treated to an extra dose of song and dance in four special evening concerts, which will feature acts from both home and abroad.

The curtain comes up on these series of shows on Wednesday, August 8, with International Jamboree, which will feature the likes of ancient drumming traditions from Korea and fandango and bolero from Spain.

On Thursday, August 8, homegrown artists will perform in Truly Northumbrian.

This popular show offers a feast of talent and tradition from the region.

Festival Fiesta is scheduled for Friday, August 10, and will feature an evening of diverse sounds and cultures, from high-energy rhythms of Mexico, to the beats of bamboo and nimble footwork of India, among others.

The curtain comes down on the festival on Saturday, August 11, when the international groups appear for the last time in Festival Fling.

All concerts start at 7.30pm.

Tickets for Wednesday and Friday are £9 adults and £8 concessions, while the Thursday and Saturday shows are £10 adults and £9 concessions. For tickets and details, call the Playhouse on 01665 510785 or visit
