Friends of Hexham Abbey Music

FOHAM is a registered charity set up to raise money towards maintaining the Abbey’s musical excellence. It plays a vital role in supporting the continuing choral and musical tradition of the worshipping life at Hexham Abbey. Grants from the ‘Friends’ support this tradition and so contribute to the music that lifts up our hearts and minds. Please consider becoming a ‘Friend’ and supporting our work.

Objectives include:

  • Helping to maintain the services of a professional Director of Music and an Assistant Organist.
  • Providing choral and organ scholarships.
  • Sponsoring vocal training workshops for the choirs.
  • Promoting performances featuring Abbey musicians as part of their musical education.
  • Encouraging wider musical activities in the Abbey.
  • Offering some free starter music lessons to choristers.

As a regular supporter of the Friends you will receive an annual newsletter and a free ticket for a concert in the Abbey, followed by a reception. The Friends of Abbey Music receive details of forthcoming events with advance booking facilities and discounts for the high calibre concerts offered during the annual Hexham Abbey Festival.
