What's on in Hexham? January 2024

Posted Thursday, 4 January, 2024

As a busy market town and the 'capital' of west Northumberland, Hexham is a year-round, all-weather destination. We have plenty on offer for visitors, even in the early months of the year.

Why not use Hexham as a base and explore Hadrian's Wall and sites such as Vindolanda and Corbridge Roman Town out of season? Wrap up warm for your adventure and then later enjoy one of our lovely pubs or restaurants or book an evening event in Hexham. Highlights include Hexham's arts centre with its 350-seat theatre, an art-deco indie cinema and our historic abbey.  

Winter is also the perfect time for enjoying the wonders of the Northumberland Dark Sky Park, which is right on our doorstep.
