Usually this would be our biggest event of the year
celebrating All that the cumberland has to offer,
beer, cider, street food and everything else in between all washed down with an amazing line up of live music.
We didn’t want to let it pass without marking it somehow.
We have put together a programme of music from some of our favourite local artists including Beccy Owen, The Gem Andrews Trio, Stagger Lee, Rob & Tom from Rob Heron and the Teapad Orchestra, Ruth & Conrad from Holy Moly & The Crackers. There will be some pre-recorded and some live content, keep an eye out for the programme of when we are streaming each set.
We are championing local breweries such as Northern Alchemy, Almasty, First and Last, Wylam and Errant and there will be an online shop to purchase beer selections so you can enjoy The Cumberland Arms at home, as well as some special merchandise to purchase too. We also encourage you to use some of the street food vendors that have been on our terrace over the years. Take out is available from so many local places including Scream for pizza, Fat Hippo, Shanty Town and Kogarashi.
Through our online shop you will be able to donate money to the event. We appreciate this is a tough time for everyone and we wanted to bring you this event for free as we do every year. But all money donated will be passed on to artists and those involved in helping the event happen. We are hoping that by taking this event online we’ll be able to bring you more online content with our aim to support artists, sound engineers, designers, local magazines and everyone else who is affected by The Cumberland’s closure.
Dig deep if you can but also if you can’t enjoy the fantastic line up we have put together for you. The Cumberland is a community and we miss it.
For now the Doors to The Cumberland remain closed but we can’t wait till we can open to be able to put on gigs, pour pints, host sessions and generally just see your wonderful faces.
