With a great view over Hexham's Market place and fully stocked with a range of food and drink including some locally sourced treats, our café bar is the perfect spot to meet with friends and watch the world go buy.

Please note, all of the products stocked in our café bar are also available to take into the auditorium during a film screening.

Our café bar hosts several fantastic regular and one-off events including art, music, poetry and much more!

Art Exhibitions - Our beautiful Art Deco area has proved a very popular backdrop for local artists to display their work and we host monthly exhibitions showcasing the talent and creativity of Northumbrians.

The Forum Quiz Night - Our brilliant quiz nights are held from 8pm on the second Friday of every month. Teams are limited to four players and entry is £1 per player with prizes available!

Quillseekers Poetry Night - From 8pm on the last Friday of every month, we host a brilliant poetry evening open to all. Each month we are joined by a guest speaker and there is also the oppurtunity for attendees to share their own work during the poetry open mic section of the night.
