25th August: Fire of the North Festival 2014

The Fire of the North Festival 2014 is well underway, but don't worry - you can still join in with the events still to come!

Tomorrow, 28th August, John will be greeting visitors to the Farne Islands NNR as they land to tell them more about the amazing St Cuthbert and his care for the wildlife of the Islands. On Sunday 31st August, John and Reserve Warden Laura will be leading a walk around Holy Island titled "Cuthbert: Lindisfarne's First Nature Warden".

On Thursday 4th September at 8.30pm, the festival comes to a spectacular end with beacons being lit on Inner Farne and at St Abb's Head NNR. A walk will be led to the Lookout on Wild Lindisfarne on Holy Island to view these beacons. It was amazing last year and this year will be even bigger and better than before!
