As October approaches we begin swapping our long summer nights of BBQs and sitting in the garden for… anything warmer!

With the dark nights drawing in it can be easy to find yourself stuck on the sofa with no clue how to spend your evenings or days off.

We have put together a list of events and shows that will be taking place at the Queen's Hall in Hexham throughout October and how you can get tickets.

What’s on at Queen's Hall

“Discover the colossal Stone Troll, the mysterious Indrik and Japanese Baku; the Tooth Fairy (not as sweet as you’d think), an adorable Unicorn and majestic Griffin. Take your place among legendary heroes, just don’t wake the Dragon…”
