The event has become a village social landmark in the space of a very short period of time and we intend keeping improving the quality of the day's activities.

Throughout the day there will be 25 acts and 120 performers, as well as an Art Trail which will be accompanied by ten local artists.

The event will feature an array of different music genres which will appeal to everyones taste – sax, folk, choirs, medieval instruments, jazz and rock.

Each year we have had a different focus and this year is no change whilst simultaneously retaining the popular 'favourites' in their known slots.

The Bridge is an ideal focal point in the village and there have had great performances there in the rain, wind and most effectively in the hot sunshine.

The Gallery45 Courtyard is a great venue as is the Long Room directly above it. All of the outdoor venues are heavily dependent on good weather but, as in previous years, we will have wet-weather alternatives in place for each outdoor venue as a back-up plan.

The Stag Head Beer Tent and the Prosecco Van in Gallery 45's Courtyard proved to be a significant success and will be repeated, however, minor amendments will be introduced to ensure that musical performances get a fair hearing.

The outline plan for the evening in the village hall is a Battle of the Bands event. This event normally takes place in Alnwick Playhouse but because of refurbishment the Duchess High School has offered to host the event in the village hall. This will attract a number of extremely proficient youngsters to compete for the title with street-busking and venue performance as an integral part of the competition.

The intention of this event for the local community is to increase the youth representation into the event as well as encouraging the community's young musicians and artists to participate.

A selection of food and beverages will be avaliable throughout the day; teas, coffees, cakes and later in the day, perhaps a glass of wine.
