CORBRIDGE residents turned out to enjoy the village's annual A Midsummer's Evening event this week.

The event, on Thursday (June 23), saw traders and community groups come together to create what has become one of the highlights of the Corbridge social calendar.

Villagers enjoyed live music and dance, late-night shopping and street food as the celebration, which is held on the Thursday closest to the longest day of the year, made its return for the first time since the Covid-19 pandemic.

There were also stalls, alpacas and face painting.

The event, organised by Visit Corbridge, also coincided with a textile and art exhibition at St Andrew's Church.

Kerry Armstrong owns Purple Hound, an independent dog boutique that opened just before the start of the pandemic.

She said: "I've been to these events as a resident because I live in Corbridge but it's nice to see it back on again.

"There are lots of people in the village, wandering around, so it's always good. And there are lots of dogs!"
