Advance notice: in 2015 we celebrate our 40th year!

Eight days of music, song and dance from 1st to 8th August 2015


Every year in early August, Alnwick is filled with the sounds and sights of the International Music Festival.

And next year will be an extra-special milestone, as we will celebrate our 40th year.

Eight days of passionate folk dancing, music and colourful costumes in the historic surroundings of Alnwick - a unique cultural experience!

We will update this website in early 2015 with further information about invited groups and planned activities.


Welcoming the world to Alnwick - the beating heart of Northumberland!

Points for Action:

Here (above) are some photos from recent festivals, to whet your appetite.

Our visiting groups have a great time in and around Alnwick. None more so than the group Łodz Folk Song and Dance Ensemble from Poland. They put together this lively video of some contemporary dance moves at various locations around Northumberland and Edinburgh!

The symbol of the Festival is a dove, an international symbol of peace. One of the aims of the festival is to promote friendship and understanding between nations, as well as offering great fun for everyone who takes part - performers and spectators alike.

We look forward to seeing you!
