About Us

A Summer Bank Holiday to Remember!


Let’s talk of music, picnics and relaxing

The Bamburgh B Festival is a fantastic summer evening music festival that happens in the shadow (metaphorically speaking) of Bamburgh castle.

A celebration of a multitude of genres of music from classical through to rock and roll and many points in between.

Our aim is to give you a great summer evening, lounging on picnic blankets or deck chair, enjoying your own picnic, listening to some cool sounds and watching the sun set on Bamburgh castle – perhaps with a glass of fizz or whatever tickles your fancy.

We also have a great selection of food and drink stalls around the Castle Green.

Let the Bamburgh B Festival provide the venue, the music and the atmosphere, all you have to do is bring along the things you need to be comfortable, warm clothing, dancing shoes and remember, your wicker baskets packed with delights.

There can be few better ways to pass a late summer evening.

We hope to see you at the Bamburgh B Festival in August.

A few words about us


Let us introduce ourselves

The Bamburgh B Festival is organised by the events team at HospiceCare Northumberland and the funds raised go directly to this wonderful charity, supporting people with life-limiting illnesses and their families in our local communities.


All the fabulous artists donate their time and expenses to be at the festival and support our charity.

The 2015 and 2016 Festival has raised over £17,000 helping us to provide for 700 hours of Specialist Hospice at Home nursing to people living in our local communities.

We could not run this event without the invaluable support from our sponsors. We must make a special mention to Brian Martin at The Berwick Music Gallery and his professional team for their smooth management of the stage show.

All the stewards are our amazing volunteers and we are all committed to ensuring that YOU have a great time and enjoy the event.

As with all events involving large numbers of people we ensure that the necessary first aid and marshals are available and identifiable and we take the responsibility of the running of the festival seriously so you don’t have to!
