The Peregrini Lindisfarne Heritage Festival is back this year with an array of exciting heritage focused activities. The landscape partnership, funded by the Heritage Lottery fund is building on the success of last year’s event and will be held on Holy Island on the 17th and 18th June.
Taking place in the Crossman Village Hall will be an art exhibition and a display on work undertaken be the social archive group. In Sanctuary Close, there will be a number of heritage demonstrations including pottery firing, greenwood turning, candle making and flint knapping. Also present will be a Viking jeweller, pole lathe bodger and blacksmith.
The public will get the chance to try their hand at a marine themed kite and flag making session as well as magical willow wand making. An archaeological dig will also be taking place on Lindisfarne Heugh.
Brenda Stanton, Chair of the Peregrini Lindisfarne Landscape Partnership said ‘The heritage festival gives people the opportunity to learn more about traditional trades and crafts but also find out more on how they can get involved. The festival will show off some of the amazing work completed by volunteers involved in the scheme’.
