Hexham Book Group
Since 2008 we have been running a Book Group at the Forum Cinema in partnership with New Writing North, Hexham Book Festival is now taking over the management of this group. We meet on the first Tuesday of each month and we welcome new members, our meetings are informal and we encourage different members of the group to choose a book for discussion if they would like to. If you are interested in joining us, just turn up or email us in advance.

10th Anniversary Anthology
In 2015 we started an exciting writing project, celebrating the 10th anniversary of Hexham Book Festival, with invited authors who each spent some time at various locations throughout the County, writing a piece of work either during or after their residency. We are delighted with the resultant anthology which you can now read in the link below.
Authors who have taken part are; Ross Raisin, Michael Chaplin, Harry Pearson, Will Atkins, Evie Wyld, Debi Gliori, Sarah Moss and Melissa Harrison, and Kathleen Jamie.
Northumberland. Time and Place.
This project has been supported by Arts Council England and Active Northumberland.
