What’s on near Beaufront

Many visitors to Beaufront think that they are coming to the back end of beyond ( and of course in some ( welcome) senses they are !) but they also marvel at how much is happening within less than   five miles of the front  door .

Hexham has an annual Book Festival that attracts “A List ” authors , a thriving Arts Centre at the Queen’s Hall ( which has a year round programme that is very varied) . There’s plenty of music at the Abbey , which also has its own annual  festival, and of course there are regular meetings at Hexham race course .

Corbridge  has  its Summer Chamber Music festival in the Saxon church in the centre of the village , an enormous Real Ale Festival ( held , predictably ,at the Tynedale Rugby Club) . Indeed that Club is one of the best in the North and its home  games are well worth watching from comfortable surroundings .

Every Bank Holiday Monday in late May  nearby Bywell hosts  the  Northumberland County Show.

World Heritage Site , Hadrian’s Wall, has frequent Roman  events and even a regular  bus service ( the No 122 – commemorating the year the Wall was built)  to get you to some hard to reach places . Some very scenic parts of the Wall are less than a mile from Beaufront

There are several websites listing and describing specific events  and one that aims  to cover all that’s happening locally . Here’s a link to it  http://www.visithexham.net. That site is a good one because once in it you can then click through to sites covering many of the things mentioned above.
