Queens Hall Arts Centre
The Queen’s Hall Arts Centre in Hexham is a magnificent early Victorian building which faces Hexham Abbey. The building is shared with Hexham Library and the Exchange Café. It has a 350-seat theatre and two art galleries. It produces 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.
This nearby cinema always gets rave reviews from our guests. The Forum cinema is located in Hexham and run by the Hexham Community Partnership. It has an art-deco appearance and feels like it's a step back in time. The seats are very comfortable, and it has a relaxing atmosphere. It shows most top films, but only has the one screen. Drinks are allowed in the auditorium, and some say that they sell the best popcorn in the UK!
