A unique exhibition of over 100 photographs depicting ‘My Northumberland’ will go on display at Alnwick Playhouse Gallery as part of the What a Wonderful World Festival.

The public were invited to send a photograph of a special place or a scene in the county and to write a few words about what it means for them.

“The overall quality of the images is really inspiring,” says chair of the judging panel, Sue Patience. “This free exhibition captures the beauty and character of Northumberland’s landscapes and wildlife as they are now and suggests some of the changes to our region that we might expect due to global warming. We were particularly pleased to receive some excellent entries from young people 18 and under.”

The exhibition can be viewed from June 3 to July 4.
