December Highlights

Christmas Fayres, Fairs, Fetes and Markets
The highlight of all the Christmas Markets in Northumberland for me is always the Berwick Dickensian Market which takes place this year on Sunday 9th December between 11am and 4pm. With around 50 stalls in the Town Centre, santa in the Town Hall, free entertainment on street and stage, mulled wine and lots of people in full Dickensian costume it's always a great experience.

Cinema and the Arts
Northumberland's Arts Centres and Cinemas offer an excellent choice and range of theatre and film. If the weather is bad, or just too cold to tackle, why not stay indoors and enjoy some culture or a film. The Maltings in Berwick, Alnwick PlayhouseQueen's Hall Arts Centre in Hexham, The Forum Cinema in Hexham and The Phoenix Theatre in Blyth. For a list of weekly Markets and Farmer's Markets visit our Markets in Northumberland page.
