Prepare to be entertained with an extra special Live InDurham weekend in Durham City - we’ve organised a full schedule of exciting events for music lovers, and families to enjoy this Autumn!
We're really looking forward to this month's Live InDurham as part of October’s InDurham Weekend. We've pulled together a vibrant and engaging programme of events with two special events in particular, so, as always; there is something for everyone in the City.
Starting on Thursday 13th October, the weekend will kick off with a thrilling night of free live music in celebration of the Arts and local talent in Durham City. The special Live InDurham evening of entertainment promises to be one not to miss. Whatever your musical style, we'll have a variety of some of the best local talent on offer across four great venues in the heart of the City.
So head down to Head of Steam, Esquires, Lounge Durham and Starbucks from 6pm to see and enjoy some of the finest local and emerging musical talent in Durham.
This will be followed by two days of family entertainment on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th October with Hey, Presto! at the Gala Theatre, part of Durham Book Festival which runs until 16th October. Families we're sure will love the Hey, Presto! Events; they promise to be fun-filled and are proving to be extremely popular, so we'd encourage people to book their free ticket soon on our website to avoid disappointment.
Based on the book by Nadia Shireen and accompanying theatre production, the events will offer music and craft workshops for families. Visitors can learn some of the songs from the show or maybe even make a costume or prop with visiting artist Kate Eccles. There will also be face painting, balloon modelling and storytelling from Waterstones Durham.
If you're popping into Durham City to enjoy the music on 13th October, why not take advantage of late night opening at the same time? Make sure you also make the most of the Dine InDurham and Fashion InDurham too with set menu deals and special offers available across the City over the weekend!
Full details of the Live InDurham events are available on our online events pages. All events are free but families are advised to book tickets to the Hey, Presto! activities as soon as possible as places are limited.
