Northumbria Food and Wine festival October 7-9th

Corbridge is once again laying on the best that Northumbria has to offer - the North East's biggest wine and gastronomic event takes place in october and I will be there, although sadly just popping in:
There will be great cooking from Sachins and The Feathers Inn from Hedley on the Hill, whio have just won the The UK Gastropub and Great British Pub of the Year 2011.
The Festival is at the Tynedale Rugby Club, in in floored heated festival marquees, with live music, wine talks and tasting tours. There are artisan food and wine producers and pop-up restaurants. You should go!
If you have not been to the Feathers I recommend it. I am a fan of all the pubs in my patch but the Feathers is up there with such pubs as the Barrasford Arms, The Battlesteads, The Duke of Wellington and The Pheasant for great food. Best pub chat and best cricket pitch on the doorstep just about goes to the Wallace Arms in Featherstone.
All in all Northumberland has a great deal to offer and we need to support our local pubs
