Have the best summer in history with Bamburgh Castle’s feel good events line up

Pilates in the castle anyone? Or follow in the footsteps of recent major moviemakers for top-billed outdoor cinema screenings?

Bamburgh Castle is promising a summer-loving line up of feel good entertainment and experiences to celebrate happier times as lockdown restrictions lift.

Events include outdoor theatre performances, cinema nights, living history with Anglo Saxon and Viking re-enactments, Pilates sessions and vintage car rallies.

Bamburgh Castle event manager Karen Larkin said: “We’re all ready and well in need of some amazing, spirit-lifting times. We’re super-excited about the line-up of events and experiences taking place in Bamburgh over the summer holidays and beyond.

“Fantastic anyway as stand-alone events, with the added wow-factor of taking place in England’s finest coastal castle and our incredible setting, high above the coast, they’re elevated to a whole new level and are even more special and exclusive.”

Bamburgh Castle hit international headlines recently as a film location for a major blockbuster production.

Now, visitors will be able to come to the castle and experience its cinematographic magic with screenings of feelgood Dirty Dancing, Bohemian Rhapsody, Grease and Mamma Mia!

While for those seeking a memorable experience to enhance their wellbeing while harnessing the energy of the castle’s 3000-year-old site, Bamburgh Castle is partnering Pilates specialist and GB Stand Up Paddle athlete Anna Little with a series of workshops in the panoramic setting of the castle’s grounds, suitable for all ages and abilities.

Staying true to Bamburgh Castle’s Anglo Saxon provenance as a royal palace and home of the real Last Kingdom of Bebbanburg, see history brought to life with Anglo Saxon and Viking re-enactors and settlement camp.
