Seaside Festival

August 9th-11th, 2019

To engage with the community and the holiday goers who love the seaside resort of Spittal!
The Festival takes place each year in the 2nd weekend of August!

Seaside Festival in Spittal (Berwick upon Tweed)


In 2019, the annual Seaside Festival takes place on 9th, 10th & 11th August, along the full length of Spittal Promenade. Visitors to the Festival will be able to enjoy street (and beach) entertainers, Punch & Judy, donkey rides, live music, stalls, kids sand castle competitions, food and drink outlets, splashpark, amusement arcade, bouncy castles and all the fun of the fair.

The Miami ride always proves popular to visitors of the Festival.

Fantastic beach art by Sean Corcoran who has visited the festival for the last 2 years.


Entrance and programs are free but don’t be embarrassed to throw your loose change in the collection buckets. The more money we collect the more free entertainment we can provide. If everyone put £1 in a bucket it will help the Trust improve Spittal and help the Festival grow.

Children’s entertainers at the Festival.


For those that want to take time to enjoy the views, sea air and watch the world go by there will be a variety of food outlets which will cater for most tastes.

Keep an eye out for the dolphins while you are visiting.


The area in which we live has a long history of being a destination for a day at the seaside for people from North Northumberland, The Scottish Borders and East Lothian.
