This is thanks to us devising the idea of a dedicated ‘Northumberland Day’ – a day in the annual calendar, when residents and businesses in Northumberland all celebrate what is best about the county. Alternatively, if the public decide, this could become a week or fortnight-long celebration.
Langley Castle first put out the call for a Northumberland Day on July 8, 2015 and has since generated extensive publicity in north east print media, as well as on BBC Radio Newcastle. We have already interested TV stations too and have received messages of support from Councillor Val Tyler at Northumberland County Council and Northumberland Tourism – who were approached by the Newcastle Evening Chronicle, in response to our launch of the concept.
When we realised that this concept had never been mooted before, we felt well placed to make this call. Langley, was once owned by Cadwallader John Bates, a former Sheriff of Northumberland, whilst current owner, Dr Stuart Madnick, has played his own part in Northumberland’s history by getting the titles of Baron of Langley and Lord of the Manor of Langley back from the Crown, following their sequestration after Langley’s part in the attempt to put Bonnie Prince Charlie back on the throne.
The vision that we have devised and are championing and driving is one that encompasses a celebration of the county’s heritage, tradition, myths and legends, food and drink, landscape and tourism attractions. It is about generating civic pride in what Northumberland has to offer – to both its residents and to those who visit this beautiful county. It is geared towards making businesses feel buoyant and giving tourism a special boost on what could be, not just one day, but a week of special events and activities.
We only have to look at Yorkshire and Lancashire to see how such days can work, whilst examples such as Murcia Day, in Spain, are inspiring templates to follow, if we wish to reach out to all communities and businesses.
Northumberland Day 2017 is already beginning to take shape following the announcement by the originators of the idea, Langley Castle, and its committed steering group, that the county’s first dedicated day will be held on Sunday May 28 2017.
Langley Castle will be celebrating Northumberland Day on Saturday 27th May 2017. For full details click HERE.
Northumbrians across the county have already responded to the news. Enquiries about how to get involved have been received from local organisations, including the U3A network, whilst activity is already being planned by Hexham Racecourse, The Pudding Parlour’s stores and Ford and Etal Estates.
Some dynamic individuals have already created events. An all-day ‘Northumberland Rocks’ event has already been arranged for Sunday May 28 at the Whitehouse Unique Social Club in Ashington. The event will feature Northumberland-based bands, four of which have already confirmed to organiser, John Emery.
Additionally, a message of support, and desire to get involved at Alnwick Castle, has been received from the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland.
The County Show, taking place the day after Northumberland Day, has been part of the planning committee and is an enthusiastic supporter of the idea.
Jane Hunt, managing director of Catapult PR – the agency which suggested the idea of Northumberland Day to its client Langley Castle – has this week presented the concept to the Hadrian’s Wall Tourism Association, whose members are considering ways in which they can also take part and promote Northumberland Day via their websites and communications and through local food and drink promotion.
Additionally, Jane has received a ‘Song for Northumberland’ by Doctor Keith Armstrong, a published poet and poetry performer and the coordinator of the Northern Voices Community Projects creative writing and community publishing enterprise. His work has appeared in publications such as the New Statesman and Poetry Review and he has kindly allowed his ‘Song for Northumberland’ to be used as part of the promotion for Northumberland Day, also offering to perform it.
Details of Northumberland Day have been presented to the Kielder Business Forum, by Natalie Wood, Business Relationships Manager at Northumberland Tourism.
“I think it’s fair to say that we are already seeing momentum behind this exciting concept,” says Langley Castle Hotel and Restaurant’s owner, Dr Stuart Madnick. We have been delighted by the response we have received in the last two weeks, since we announced the date. Now is the time for everyone to start planning what they are going to do on Northumberland Day, or in the week around Northumberland Day, and get plans in place and, as importantly, in calendars and diaries, as well as on websites and email footers.
“We would urge all towns, villages and communities to get involved. If you love your county, don’t let your community be embarrassed by not having demonstrated that. We wish to see Northumberland turned yellow and red for the week of Northumberland Day and send out a signal to the rest of the UK that Northumbrians are immensely proud of the place in which they live and work.”
If you are a business, organisation or individual wishing to be part of Northumberland Day you can contact Jane Hunt at – Nday@catapultpr.co.uk She can also provide logo and letterhead designs for use on websites and any other correspondence. You may also wish to call her (01253) 8911114 or follow the Facebook & Twitter pages for regular updates. There is also an official Northumberland Day Website, which has full details of events and how to get involved.
Jane is also planning some Northumberland Day drop-in sessions, at which she will speak to anyone interested in finding out more. She will be announcing the dates and venues for those soon.
“We would also like to create at least one big centrepiece for Northumberland Day, or a series of events, so would be delighted to hear from any corporate sponsors wishing to lend its support to this exciting date in the county’s calendar. Our message to potential sponsors is, ‘Do you love Northumberland enough?’ If you do, please show it.”

Some kind words
"Recently had a family wedding at Langley. What can I say but absolutely awesome! Everything from the food to the service to the accommodation was outstanding. Best wedding ever and that was due to the hard work and dedication of the Langley Team - Thank you Langley Castle. You made our dreams come true"

“A castle of excellence.”
"My partner and I spent the night here as a birthday surprise for her, and we were both thoroughly impressed. The castle itself retains an authentic medieval ambience whilst being lavishly yet tastefully decorated. Our room was wonderfully cosy and atmospheric, the staff were courteous and the entire experience was a pleasure."
Matthew R - Bristol, UK - June 2016
"Authentic castle in glorious surroundings"
"I cannot recommend this hotel and its restaurant highly enough. The castle oozes authentic charm. It is tastefully decorated, the staff are very friendly without being familiar and the castle is set in some well laid out grounds. The restaurant food is excellent. This is the perfect 'get away from it location' for a romantic break."
Pjr110960 - Cape Town, South Africa - July 2016
"This was a midweek break, the renovated castle is an original 1350's building, beautifully restored and run. The staff are extremely efficient and friendly. The room well appointed with a tea tray, mini bar, TV with a sky package and wifi throughout.
The breakfast, delicious and the evening restaurant food exceptional. Booked through groupon, this was a fantastic find."
Elayne Y - Nottingham, UK - July 2016
"Can not fault anything what a beautiful setting and food to die for, this should be 2 Michelin Star easily...a true credit to chefs, waiting on staff and all who have the privelage of working in an amazing warm and beautiful castle..faultless by far "
" A real treat"
"Decided to mark our 40th here as it had been recommended. Certainly glad we did. Felt totally at ease but really special from the moment we arrived. All the staff are a credit to the Castle Hotel.Very pleasant and professional. We felt pampered. The meal in the evening was very special and beautifully presented and tasted divine. Stayed in the Derwentwater Room, huge and well furnished. Perfect nights sleep"

"Brilliant, Superb, Delightful, Excellent, Wonderful, Marvelous, Exceptional. I can't find the right word for this place. We went for an evening meal on the last day of a fantastic holiday. It was the perfect finish to a perfect holiday. RETURN I wish I could have every meal here!
JuP1954 - Selby, UK - September 2016
"Wonderful setting, room and staff"
"We had a lovely suite in the external block: homely but smart with it. Even the tea/coffee facilities came with 'not in cellophane' biscuits, i.e. actual homemade biccies! The cooked breakfast was excellent, and being able to watch the peacocks coming and going as we ate added a nice touch of opulance."
Shahhed H - October 2016
"It does not get any better than this"
"If you are looking for a real castle experience then you need look no further, this is the REAL DEAL!! Some hotels will claim to offer the castle experience but fail to live up to the castle experience but fail to live up to expectations but Langley delivers. Attentitive, friendly, efficient staff, excellent dining experience in a beautiful dining room. We stayed in the Percy Room which was fantastic, luxury! I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone and will certainly be returning"
Colin d - Aberdeen - October 2016
"Langley Castle is in a beautiful setting. We arrived before our room was ready and decided to have a full afternoon tea; so glad we did! it was delicious and filled us up for the rest of the day. The room was immaculately clean, the bed was very comfortable. Wifi was good and parking is free. Near Vindolanda, a must-see in the area"
kewjewl - Ruckersville - September 2016
"Amazing hotel, beautiful surroundings"
"I've always wanted to stay in a Castle. My husband surprised me with an anniversary gift of an over-night stay in the hotel's Tower Room. The castle is simply stunning and I couldn't wait to get inside. The staff were so helpful and friendly and couldn't do enough for us. Our room was gorgeous and spacious with a luxurious 4-poster bed and fantastic facilities. We had an evening meal in the restaurant which was as beautiful and opulant as the rest of the hotel. Highly recommended for that special treat!"
moojoo29 - October 2016
"We stayed in the CastleV iew Rooms. Well appointed and air-conditioned. The first floor for pre-dinner drinks was a lovely start to the evening and the restaurant itself continued the theme. Great place, great food and friendly/attentive staff. I'd definitely recommend it."
Paul N - Sunderland - August 2016
"Like stepping into a perfect dream"
"We arrived at dusk, we were enchanted immediately. What a stunning stately place. We stayed in the Cadwallader Room which was perfect in every way. The staff were so helpful and tolerent. This hotel you have to experience for yourself in all its mystique and splendour, it was well worth trekking from the U.S. to it."
