Admission to the event will be FREE and the activities will be centred around the bandstand area and extend onto the grassy areas of Carlisle Park. People are encouraged to bring their own picnic, however there will be various catering vans on site and a barbecue provided free of charge by Morpeth Churches Together

The themes this year draw on two centenaries: Women’s Suffrage and the End of World War I

Suffragette Tea Room in the Pavilion – there will be no charge for the tea and cake! 

Community Art Project – with children will be making Suffragette rosettes this year. 

Time Bandits will create a WWI trench and have “over the top” training sessions for everybody to take part in.  They will also bring food from that time - for example bully beef! And tell stories and read poetry relevant to the period. 

Plus a free BBQ from Churches Together
