Be proud

ALNWICK’S Music Festival is truly international and with a reputation to match its name.

It is by far the best which is why I, a pensioner, have come up from Sheffield for the past 24 festivals.

None of the others can match the closeness of performers, townspeople and visitors, many of these being regulars.

I expect to be there each day in the front row with my bag of pound coins, cushion and camera, tea and sandwich from the hall, book from the Lions shop and a big smile.
