At last year's Bamburgh Village show a competition was held for a design to promote Bamburgh becoming a Plastic Free village. The winning design chosen by members of the public has been used for the cotton canvas bags that are now on sale.

The new Bamburgh Festival will take place on Saturday, August 17, in and around the pavilion and castle green.

It will include the many activities enjoyed at past village shows and fairs with the addition of many new attractions.
