Special events are taking place tomorrow to celebrate 10 years since Woodhorn Museum and Northumberland Archives opened, following a £16million redevelopment of the historic site.

The birthday festivities at the Ashington venue include a family-friendly print workshop, from 11am to 3pm.

Visitors will also have the chance to enjoy excerpts from a new contemporary dance work, entitled Pitman, and inspired by the Ashington Group of Artists. Showings are at 11am, 1pm and 3pm.

People can also drop in to a memory-box-making session, from 11am to 3pm.
