The Hexham Abbey Flower Festival is a fun packed day out for all the family!  Taking place over the 21st - 23rd July, it is a celebration of colour, nature and creativity, with over 40 displays.

The main feature of the long weekend involves the Hexham & District Flower Club covering the Abbey in an amazing series of displays which are all focussed on points of interest in the Abbey, including positions such as the Altar, Font, Night Stairs, Flavinus Stone, Frith Stool and many more! 

Outside on the lawns we have a large marquee and market theme, with a host of stalls, displays and activities for all.  There will be a main stage for workshops, talks and demonstrations on all manner of flower, garden and general outdoor themes — plus music and fun for all the family, including competitions, crafts, tombola, bouncy castle, BBQ and market stalls.

Price: free entry for all.

Opening times: 10am-5pm, 21st-23rd July.

We are hugely grateful to our sponsors and supporters who make this event possible, they include our headline partner, Everest, and sponsors; The Biscuit Factory, St James' Place, and Andrew Coulson Sales and Lettings.  Our supporters include the Community Foundation, through the Winter Family Fund, and our very own Hexham BID group.
