It’s hard not to be a fan of a venue like The Cumberland Arms. Welcoming, inclusive and unfailingly generous, with a superb music policy, great beer and an unbeatable location, it’s basically pretty fabulous. Having been under the stewardship of Jo Hodson for 20 years, they’re certainly making the most of their anniversary year, with pop-ups, collaborations and special shows aplenty, and this month it’s NARC.’s turn to get in on the action and help the venue celebrate!

On Saturday 16th July we’ve programmed a full day of free live entertainment, taking over the (guaranteed!) sunny terrace from 3pm for a family-friendly show which will feature Teesside cellist and songwriter Harriet Bradshaw, acoustic indie duo Fawns and alt. rock superstars The Timewasters, plus electro spoken word artist Faithful Johannes, indie rock from Holly Rees and good-time rock ‘n’ roll vibes from Weekend Faithful. If that wasn’t enough, there will also be sustenance from awesome burger slingers Fat Hippo.

The day also marks the return of the Ouseburn Festival, which will see the Valley filled with free entertainment including an artisan market, live performance on the Ouseburn Bandstand and much more.
