Welcome to the Northumberland Day website!
Northumberland Day was created in 2017, as an annual celebration taking place on the last Sunday in May and the official county day of the county of Northumberland.
Northumberland Day enjoyed some fantastic celebrations from then until 2019. As we all know, the pandemic made coming together impossible or very difficult, scuppering big plans that we had for 2020. 2021 was still touch-and-go so far as social distancing was concerned and then 2022’s celebrations were rather overshadowed by the Platinum Jubilee.
2023 is our chance to get Northumberland Day back to where it was and really bring schools, communities and businesses together in a lovely May-time celebration of everything that is fantastic about the county, its heritage, culture, food and drink, landscape, nature, tourism hotspots and other elements of life.
Anyone can get involved and put on an event. It could be a music event, a food-tasting soirée, a community picnic, a sports challenge, Northumberland quiz night, special Northumberland walk or tour, or something else.
It may even be something that you’ve already got in your diary or tourism schedule but which fits in with the Northumberland Day’s period (e.g. something for people to do).
Just tell us about it and we will put it on our event pages. Just email email@example.com
Although the official date is Sunday May 28, 2023, events can happen in the two weeks around Northumberland Day. Listing them is beneficial, as we get tremendous web traffic to the site during the months of April and May.
