Northumberland Residents’ Festival
Local residents will be able to enjoy free or discounted entry to many of the top attractions across Northumberland including castles, gardens, stately homes and museums. The date has been set for the third annual Northumberland Residents’ Festival which will take place on Saturday, 24 and Sunday, 25 March 2012.
Event organisers Northumberland County Council are hoping that residents will take the opportunity to experience the wonderful attractions Northumberland has to offer and put the date in their diaries now. The festival aims to give something back to people living in the county and promises some fantastic days out at a time when money is tight for so many.
Residents will need special vouchers to receive free or discounted entry to the attractions and these will be available from local libraries, council offices, tourist information centres and sports centres from mid-February onwards.
