St Cuthbert's Festival
Friday 2nd September Our first attempt at a three-day St Cuthbert's Festival started with a good and varied concert of light music by Hexham Brass. There's no reason why everything should be variations on Choral Evensong and held in church. To be fair, the first event that we started two years ago was walking the potential "St Cuthbert's Trail" cross country from one St Cuthbert's church to another. The second half of that route was rather too rugged for most people as it involved knee-high heather off any public right of way. Last year we altered that leg of the trail which was much easier but meant retracing our steps on one section. Let's see how it goes tomorrow.
