Alnmouth Food Festival will be Sunday, 7th April 2019 from 10 am – 4 pm. Now in its 3rd year, the festival showcases some fantastic local producers from Northumberland and from further afield.

At the centre of the festival is the historic Hindmarsh Hall, which hosts several other events throughout the year including the Alnmouth Arts Festival, Wool Fair and Volcano Night.

Last year’s event was topped off with some spectacular weather, which was perfect for exploring the beautiful coastal village. Get yourself along on Sunday, with proceeds going towards the upkeep of the hall and village events.
