Welcome to the Autumn season at the Queen’s Hall Arts Centre
We’ve got some great entertainment for you as the nights draw in - everything from Alan Ayckbourn to Abba and Marilyn Monroe to Oddsocks at Christmas. Alongside our traditional varied mix there’s some new and exciting developments - a gaming event in September, a new BITESIZE commission, Personal Growth, in October and the ultimate challenge - out-dance us at our Bonfire Party in November!
We are proud to bring you high quality shows and exhibitions, and we are passionate about developing the next generation of artists through supporting emerging companies and through the range of youth arts projects that we run. This work is funded by ticket sales and by grants from Arts Council England and Northumberland County Council.
Queen's Hall Arts (QHA) is the charitable company that manages the venue, Queen's Hall Arts Centre, Hexham and provides an art service to a large part of rural Northumberland.
The Queen's Hall is a magnificent early Victorian building which faces Hexham Abbey (dating from 647AD). From its christening as an arts centre in 1983 until the hand over to the charitable organisation, Queens Hall Arts in 2001, the building was under local authority control. The building is shared with Hexham Library and the Little Angel Cafe, both tenants of Queens Hall Arts. Queen's Hall's resident theatre company Theatre Sans Frontieres is based in offices at QHAC and opens all of its shows in the Theatre.
Next year we will be celebrating 150 years of the Queen’s Hall. Together we can make sure it’s going to be here for the next 150 years.
