Keep Your Seats, Please (1936)

Hexham Local History Society was founded in 1966 and is now the largest local history society in Northumberland.  

With over 250 current members, regular newsletters and publications, a series of talks and organised excursions, the Society has much to offer anyone interested in Hexham and its history.

The Society helps with its knowledge and expertise in many public and private activities. It is often asked to advise on local historical discoveries and to answer queries from individuals, local planning authorities, community groups and council officers.

Led by Forum Cinema Hexham, Tyne Valley Film Festival will bring together communities in and around the Tyne Valley for a celebration of the history of film.
