What's On In Hexham? July 2024

Posted Wednesday, 26 June, 2024

July's events diary is another bumper one for Hexham. The line-up ranges from big events such as the Hexham Bluegrass Festival and  - in stark contrast - the Northern Saints' Flower Festival to the new 'gruesome' tours from Hidden Horrors and BYOB 'Pot and A Pint' Friday night sessions at Obscuria Pottery Studio. As part of its 1350th year celebrations, Hexham Abbey will also be bringing a triple-bill of cover bands to an outdoor gig in the Abbey Cloisters - limited tickets remain for Scam Fender, Kopycat Killers and the SunArctic Monkeys!
