Spring FestivalHexham Market Place and parks make a wonderful setting for events throughout the year.  Our three flagship community events – Spook Night, the Christmas Market and the Spring Festival –  complement Hexham’s other cultural festivals and events.

A new event, Hexham Hidden Gardens, HHGwas launched in 2016 and was the brainchild of one of HCP’s directors. Sixteen gardens around Hexham opened to the public for one sunny Sunday afternoon and all the proceeds from the £5.00 entry fee went towards our Hexham East regeneration project. The event was so successful it is being repeated again this year. See here for more details.

How to get involved:

Stallholders and caterers – if you are interested in having a stall at one of our events and would like to be on our mailing list, please contact lorraine@hexhamcommunity.net providing details of what you sell and where you are based – if possible including an image.

Entertainment – we are always looking for new ideas for entertainment at our events so if you or your club or organisations would like to participate in some way, providing entertainment or activities, please let us know – we welcome anything from belly dancing to dry stone walling, human statues to cookery demonstrations! Most of our events take place in the great outdoors but we can usually provide some shelter in the form of a gazebo or similar. Contact lorraine@hexhamcommunity.net if you would like to get involved.

Volunteers – all of our events are completely dependent on the support of our fantastic volunteers who get involved in all aspects of the events and we are always looking for more help!  In particular we would welcome help with any of the following:

  • Putting up and taking down stalls (early morning start and moderately heavy work involved so no bad backs!)
  • Social media – helping us to raise the profile of the town through taking on responsibility for maintaining these channels of communication
  • General help on the day of our events – putting up decorations, manning information stands, helping with activities, litter picking etc

Please contact lorraine@hexhamcommunity.net to get involved!

Advertising and Sponsorship – we are always looking at ways of making our events more financially sustainable and are able to offer a range of advertising/promotional opportunities for local businesses. Our three annual events are in April, October and December.  All of these events are now well established and firm diary dates for residents and visitors alike with some of the events attracting in the region of 6,000 visitors to the town.

We would like to give businesses the opportunity to sponsor one or more of these events and for further information please see the latest newsletter below or contact Lorraine on 01434 622796 or lorraine@hexhamcommunity.net
