Welcome to the 65th Hexham Abbey Festival of Music & Arts

Canon Dagmar Winter
Rector of Hexham, President of Hexham Abbey Festival

Now in its 65th year, Hexham Abbey Festival presents a delightful ‘bijou’ programme with a distinctive French flavour.

An eclectic mix of events includes Choir of the Year ‘Voices of Hope’, the Festival Chorus and Orchestra, late night jazz, one of the most exciting young guitarists in Europe, an organ spectacular, a coffee (and croissants!) concert, art and singing workshops for families and young people, an interactive talk on French philosophy of music and sound, and Festival services.

Music and Art are integral to our heritage and over this long weekend we hope that you will be inspired by everything on offer in the fabulous spaces unique to the Abbey.

Thanks to all who have made this year’s Festival possible through their generous donation of time and talents and a special thank you to our sponsors.
