Full length operas, classical and traditonal music will be on offer when a music festival tours Northumberland and beyond.

The 2016 Northumberland Music Festival will include Mozart’s The Magic Flute, Verdi’s Rigolleto, a full length performance of The Pirates of Penzance, The Northumbrian Ranters, and a concert performance by Graeme Danby when it takes place between October and March.

Taking place at The Robert Parker Collection of hotels, the festival will commence with A Feast of Gilbert & Sullivan on October 14 at Eshott Hall, and end with The Pirates of Penzance at Doxford Hall, on March 11. It will also tour the other hotels in the Robert Parker Collection, including Dalhousie Castle Hotel, near Edinburgh, Ednam House in Kelso, and the Wordsworth Hotel in Grasmere.

The decision to tour the 6th Northumbrian Music Festival is the latest innovation introduced to the unique event. Organised by The Robert Parker Collection of Hotels, the concerts have become an established part of the musical scene in Northumberland. The expansion of the hotel group was seen as an opportunity, and the events will now be held in each of the five hotels in the group.
