Allen Valleys Promotions Limited

This not-for-profit social enterprise organisation was established in February 2015 with a board of ten directors. The company’s objective is to promote cultural and artistic activities which support communities and businesses in the Allen Valleys. Its prime responsibility is to organise The Allen Valleys Folk Festival in October each year, working in conjunction with  the Allen Valleys Landscape Partnership. After a successful launch in 2014, the Festival is now in its third year with a volunteer workforce of over 50. On application to AVP, other local organisations wishing to promote folk music  in the Allen Valleys will be considered for marketing support. As a minimum, this will include a presence on the AVFF website and social media channels.    

 

Twango

Twango is a not-for-profit organisation established by Northumberland folk musicians Phil Ogg (Allenheads) and Bill Read (Alnwick). Peter Aldcroft joined them in 2014 to provide marketing and admin support. Their aim is to showcase local and regional musicians, principally at The High Forest Community Centre, Sinderhope. In the last two years they’ve hosted many talented artists including Bridie Jackson, Rod Clements, Martin Stephenson and Nick Harper.

 

Northumbrian Music Nights

NMN helped facilitate the SNAP Project (ending 2005) which promoted mutual understanding by young musicians of traditional music repertoires from France (Brittany), Sweden (Halsingland) and England (The North Pennines). This involved live performance and a professionally recorded CD and DVD. NMN currently promotes the Allendale New Year’s Eve Ceilidh, now in its tenth year. Other activities include the Hexham Gathering performance held in Allendale each May and the Community Choir Showcase usually held in the autumn.
