Berwick 900 - Celebrating 900 Years of Berwick’s History

Berwick 900 was a programme of activities and events staged throughout 2015 to celebrate nine hundred years of the history and cultural heritage of Berwick-upon-Tweed.

The Festival was organised by Derek Sharman as co-ordinator of the Berwick 900 Steering Group.

The Festival told the story of Berwick, from Scotland’s richest seaport and royal burgh in the Middle Ages to England’s most northerly town today through a series of “story themes”.

The packed programme featured colourful living history re-enactments, themed exhibitions, art and crafts projects, traditional festivals and parades, local food and drink …. all staged in historic locations around England’s most complete walled town.
