Northumberland Folk

To celebrate the reopening of its four venues, Museums Northumberland commissioned Jonny Hannah to create a county-wide exhibition celebrating some of Northumberland‘s strangest stories and most curious characters.

Northumberland Folk, which took place across Museums Northumberland’s four sites – Woodhorn Museum, Hexham Old Gaol, Berwick Museum and Art Gallery, and Morpeth Chantry Bagpipe Museum – are four connected exhibitions created in collaboration with local communities who have shared stories, artefacts and ephemera commemorating their local history.

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’s paintings, prints, publications and cut-outs, alongside objects and artefacts from the museum collections.
