Folkworks Hexham Gathering 2014
Hexham Gathering brings top folk and traditional performers together with some of the brightest rising stars in the new generation of folk musicians. It is the country’s leading festival giving performance opportunities to a host of hugely talented young singers, dancers and instrumentalists. Hundreds of performers converge on Hexham each year providing a vibrant kaleidoscope of music and spectacle throughout the town centre and at a variety of other venues in the Tyne Valley.
With some stunning performances by professional artists, this is a true highlight of the folk year with concerts, ceilidhs, sessions, informal performances and more.
Tickets for all events available from Queens Hall Arts Centre Box Office on 01434 652477.
Hexham Gathering is a partnership between Folkworks at Sage Gateshead and Queens Hall Arts Centre.
