Northumberland Folk, which takes place across Museums Northumberland’s four sites - Woodhorn Museum, Hexham Old Gaol, Berwick Museum and Art Gallery, and Morpeth Chantry Bagpipe Museum – draws inspiration from the Museum Northumberland collections, the heritage buildings themselves, and hundreds of tales and contributions from the local community.
Each exhibition shines a light on some of the untold stories and intriguing characters that make up Northumberland’s past and modern history; all told through Jonny Hannah’s paintings, prints, publications and cut-outs, alongside objects and artefacts from the museum collections.
The series of four connected exhibitions have been created in collaboration with local communities who have shared stories, artefacts and ephemera commemorating their local history.
Northumberland Folk is now open at Woodhorn Museum, Hexham Old Gaol, Berwick Museum and Art Gallery, and Morpeth Chantry Bagpipe Museum and runs until 31 October 2021.
