Saturday 7 July 1.00pm - 5.00pm
Join us for the exciting launch of The Great Northumberland 2018 programme in Hexham.
This fantastic opener for a summer-long programme of events across Northumberland kick starts with a vibrant family friendly programme of music, street theatre and a spectacular showcase event produced and created by outdoor arts aficionados, Walk the Plank.
1.00pm Come and see roving street theatre artists perform across the Abbey Grounds in a captivating display of entertaining eccentricity, plus a full line-up of musical talent being showcased on the bandstand, all in anticipation of the main showcase event at The Sele.
3.00pm - 4.00pm A showcase of forthcoming Great Northumberland 2018 events on a giant screen and backdrop map, animated with special effects, highlighting the location of these county-wide events. If it’s happening in the Great Northumberland 2018 programme, you’ll see it first here. This ‘fun for all the family’ showcase launch event will not only provide a snapshot of the whole Great Northumberland programme, but will give you the chance to enjoy an unforgettable afternoon packed with exciting things to see and do. The street theatre and a ceilidh will continue until 5.00pm.
Why not make an afternoon of it and bring a picnic?
Great Northumberland gives us another reason to shout about what makes our county so special.
