Nine centuries ago, King David of Scotland named Berwick-upon-Tweed as one of his two Royal Burghs. In 2015 Berwick is celebrating its 900-year story – and everyone’s invited. Throughout the year, special Berwick 900 events will focus on different aspects of the town’s story. Many of Berwick’s regular festivals and events will also have a historic theme in 2015.

Berwick has many stories to tell and in 2015 Berwick 900 will bring those stories to life...
