Join us to celebrate the unsung local people who have made a difference to our lives.
In 2020, North East musician Bridie Jackson worked with local communities to collect stories about the everyday people who inspire and later wrote songs celebrating the nominated heroes. An amazing line-up of local musicians then recorded their own bespoke arrangement of one of these songs, including Kate Gessey, Carol and Gary Bowden, Aukestra with Lesley Roley, Leon Fussell and Ian Brown.
This event includes live performances of the songs to launch the Unsung Heroes Augmented Reality artwork created by artists Kristin and Davy McGuire.
Unsung Heroes is an exciting multi partner music and digital arts project, developed by Queen’s Hall. Hexham for the Future Arts Centres National programme.
Part of Here and Now, a national and local celebration of culture within communities. 40 brand new projects will take place in and around 40 arts centres across the country, led by artists and co-created with local people. The project is supported by Arts Council England and Future Arts Centres, marking The National Lottery’s 25th birthday.
This performance will be sold to full capacity. If you’re able to, please wear a mask, in line with government advice. For further information on the safety measures in place at Queen’s Hall, click here.
