Hexham Launch

Date: 7 July 2018 to 7 July 2018

Location: Hexham

Client: Northumberland County Council

A fantastic summer afternoon opener for the 2018 Great Northumberland programme

To launch the Great Northumberland 2018 programme of events across the county over the summer, we staged the Hexham Launch which is, in effect, a showcase event for the whole programme.

During the early afternoon, roving street theatre artists performed across the Abbey Grounds in a captivating display of entertaining eccentricity, along with a full line-up of musical talent on the bandstand to build anticipation for the main launch showcase.

Followed later by representatives from each Great Northumberland event from across the county who came together to showcase excerpts of their forthcoming events on a giant screen and backdrop map animated with special effects highlighting the location of their show.

So, if it’s happening in the Great Northumberland 2018 programme, you’ll see it first here. This ‘fun for all the family’ showcase launch event not only provided a snapshot of the whole Great Northumberland programme, but also gave visitors the chance to enjoy an unforgettable afternoon packed with exciting things to see and do.

"We're really pleased to be part of the showcase launch for the Great Northumberland 2018 programme of events. Over the years we've developed a rich portfolio of work across Northumberland and this event showcases our expertise in animating spaces with outdoor theatrics."
