When the city meets the countryside, all is not what it seems… what is the news ‘Beyond the End of the Road’?

Set in a remote imaginary village called PLACE, our cast of 10 actors and musicians told a story infused with anecdotes and memories gathered from rural communities in Northumberland, creating a unique musical exploring rural life.  

In July 2018 November Club collaborated with County Durham’s Northern Heartlands project to take Beyond the End of the Road to rural venues in Teesdale and Weardale including Binchester, Evenwood, Stanhope, Crook, Mickleton and Barnard Castle. The tour culminated in a return to Hexham Auction Mart. 




Northern Heartlands is one of 16 Great Place Schemes in England, funded by Heritage Lottery Fund and Arts Council England. Our Great Place is in County Durham and covers Weardale and Teesdale including the market towns of Barnard Castle, Bishop Auckland, Shildon, Crook, Tow Law, and Willington. Northern Heartlands’ mission is to deliver cultural activities that transform people’s understanding of the heritage, landscapes and places they live in, building their confidence and ability to influence policy and decision-making.
