Beyond the End of the Road

In association with Hexham and Northern Marts

Past Production
Beyond the End of the Road
A midsummer musical tale celebrating Northumberland. Performed in the Bellingham Ring at Hexham Auction Mart.

Saturday 28 July, 7.30pm 

Sunday 29 July, 6.30pm 

There is a mysterious noise coming from the soil which just keeps on getting louder. Can you hear it? It's like a hum... incomer Sula cannot let it lie. Meanwhile, we have two feuding brothers, sisters with a distance, a son with a pocket full of secrets and don't ask what's hidden in the shed!

Join our storytelling rabble as they weave their midsummer tale about the residents of a village called PLACE: their loves, their losses and their deepest secrets. Featuring new music and an extended storyline, join our professional actors and musicians alongside Hexham Jubilate Choir and local talent.

The remount of Beyond the End of the Road has been made possible thanks to a £5,000 donation from the Achates Philanthropy Fund, after Hexham and Northern Marts won the Corporate Philanthropy Prize at an awards ceremony last year - celebrating cultural giving in the UK. A special thank you to our Crowdfunder supporters, without whose support these performances would not have been possible.

What people said

Fantastic performance of #beyondtheendoftheroad @November_Club - gorgeous music - all in the wonderful surroundings of Hexham Auction Mart!
What made it real for me was not only to listen to individuals and individual communities to weave each distinctive style into the tapestry of the story but to include them in the performance and, by doing so, make it theirs and ours. Thank you!
