What a great week of music

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Alnwick Music Festival for a fantastic week in the town.

I have seen first hand how much work goes into the event and praise must go to the organising committee, the kitchen staff, the stage crew and all the others (too numerous to mention), whose efforts created a wonderful experience for the crowds of visitors who came to Alnwick last week.

The musicians and performers enjoyed themselves immensely and many voiced their desire to return at the earliest opportunity.

Obviously the weather was kind (but for Monday’s mini-monsoon) but it is people who make these kind of events tick, and all concerned should take a bow for a job well done.

Alnwick should be proud to be able to put on an event like this.

Alnwick Town Councillor and Mayor of Alnwick
