With the launch of our YouTube channel the Festival has marked last year’s success, but we are now moving forward swiftly for 2021.

For a stunning visual introduction to the Festival – and to Berwick itself – please see our new short film.

At time of writing (2nd February) we cannot predict the format: we dearly hope to bring people together in Berwick but we also want to speak to our audience around the world. What I can say is that we are committed to bringing you a range of outstanding speakers across a breadth of subjects, some of very contemporary relevance, some historical or reflective in content.

Please watch for our emails: if you have not yet joined our mailing list, please do, we would be delighted to keep you updated with our plans.
