What's on in County Durham this Autumn

Posted on 26th September 2018

What’s on in County Durham this Autumn?

It’s the season when the leaves turn golden, darker nights return and the Goddess Persephone is abducted by Hades to become the queen of the underworld, marking the start of Autumn (but you knew that, right?). 

If you’re not in the business of abducting Gods, you might be looking for some interesting things to do during these cooler months; why not wrap up warm and head out to the many events taking place across the North East this year? Here’s just a few:

Halloween at Beamish

Looking to travel back in time and be haunted by hundreds of scary ghouls and ghosts? Halloween evenings at Beamish have been becoming more popular over the past few years and are great fun for all the (brave) families. Venture down to the pit village, Colliery Yard, Pockerley Old Hall and the town – all of which will be swamped with terrifying creatures. If you have the guts for it, tickets go on sale 17th September and are very limited, so be quick to avoid missing out!


Walworth Birds of Prey - Halloween special

Walwort Birds of Prey is holding a special Halloween horrors night on 27th and 28th October. Throw on your most impressive spooky costume and head down for some bat hunts and impressive flying displays. You can meet the owls and even get involved with some ferret racing! No booking required. 

World’s biggest coffee mornings!

Are you a coffee lover and fancy doing your bit for a good cause this Autumn? MacMillan Cancer Support is planning the World’s biggest coffee morning on 28th September; what could be better than relaxing with friends, enjoying some treats and raising money for a great cause, all at the same time?


Oxjam Darlo

Do you fancy getting your boogie on this October? Of course you do! Oxjam is a one-day event taking place all over Darlington, featuring over 40 local artists at seven venues across the town centre. Tickets can be purchased in advance at We Got Tickets, so what you waiting for? Go dig out your dancing shoes and we’ll see you on the dance floor. 


Jabberwocky Market

This unique pop-up festival returns for its 11th season on Wednesday October 3rd through to 7th October and has a variety of shows for all ages including Ground Control, Little Big Gigs and Rendezvous in Bratislava. More information is available here: http://luxicreative.co.uk/jabberwocky-market/
