Under the Sun

A FREE outdoor celebration of music, theatre & sunshine on the Cloister Lawn. Event runs from 12-9pm.

Some of the finest talent from Hexham and beyond emerge from lockdown and take to the stage, often for the first time since lockdown.

Come and support them at a special FREE event generously funded by Hexham Town Council and organised by Hexham Abbey.

The 9-HOUR event takes place on the Cloister Lawn of the Abbey and features a stellar line-up.

From midday you can bring along your own chairs and enjoy our BBQ or your own picnic, croquet and bar. 

From 12.40pm: Live Music (in order of appearance)

Food and a variety of alcoholic and non-alcholic drinks will be available from the Refectory, who will also be cooking up some BBQ treats. Alternatively, you can bring your own picnic. There will be ice cream, popcorn and bagged sweets on sale for those of you with a sweet tooth.

Social distancing measures will, of course, be in place - so groups of up to 6 people can sit together.

Capacity is strictly limited and there is no ticketing - so please be patient if we need to ask you to wait until we can find you a safe place to sit. You are welcome to bring your own chairs and (small) tables.

Toilets will be available within the Refectory. Please dress for all weathers - and please understand that if we are experiencing significant winds that we may have to close the event site for safety reasons.
