Preview: Coming up at Queen’s Hall Arts Centre






              Events coming up in Hexham

The Queen’s Hall is a magnificent early Victorian building which faces Hexham Abbey (dating from 647AD).  From its christening as an arts centre in 1983 until the hand over to the charitable organisation, Queens Hall Arts in 2001, the building was under local authority control. The building is shared with Hexham Library and the Little Angel Café, both tenants of Queens Hall Arts. Queen’s Hall’s resident theatre company Théâtre Sans Frontières is based in offices at QHAC and opens all of its shows in the Theatre.

Queen’s Hall Arts Centre boasts a 350-seat theatre and two galleries all managed by Queens Hall Arts.

The Queen’s Hall Arts Centre has established itself as a strong base for an extensive range of artistic activity, attracting the best international and national artists from music, drama, dance and national touring comedy to non professional shows put on by local community groups.
July is looking like an exciting month and we list a number of upcoming events below.
