Festival FAQ

Is everything free?

All performances in the Sele Park on the Saturday and Sunday of the festival are free to all and no
tickets are required. There may be a charge for fringe events not directly organised by the Festival
committee, and relevant information for these will be provided nearer the time. There will be a
modest charge for the Hoe Down, and this will be ticketed as numbers are limited.

Is there food on site?

No, but there is plenty of space to have a picnic, and there are many great places in Hexham within a
few minutes’ walk from the park where you can get food and drink.

Anything else I should bring?

There is some limited seating provided, but you might want to bring a chair or blanket, and be
prepared for whatever the weather brings as all events in the park are open-air.

Is there camping?

Unlike many other bluegrass festivals, Hexham Bluegrass Festival is very much town-based and centered around the Sele Park in the heart of  Hexham. As such so there is no dedicated Festival campsite. If you are coming to camp or stay in a live-in vehicle there are sites within easy reach of the town centre.

Will there be sessions?

Like last year, it’s hoped that there will be sessions in some of the local establishments. More details
to follow nearer the time.
