Welcome to the Seahouses Festival website! The festival is a community-based event celebrating the diversity and distinctiveness of life on the Northumberland coast. The programme and range of events is planned to provide something of interest for most ages and musical tastes. 

The festival is completely free! Donations would be very gratefully received. Thank you to all our sponsors, who make this possible.

Catch-A-Fishie (Film, 50 mins) Methodist Church, 7pm

Documentary film that accompanies the trawling skippers of the northeast coast as they pursue the fish and the fishing community tells its own experiences in its own words. The drama of the hunt is also captured in song by the Eyemouth Fisherman’s Choir, who become a story in their own right; we hear how their old songs are lost and heard no more.
