Winter Festival 2021

Update: Headway Arts Winter Festival Cancelled
If you’ve been into Blyth since Friday you might have noticed our building sustained some damage to the roof during Storm Arwen, like much of the local area.
Until the roof is repaired much of the building is out of use. Because of this we are very sorry to say we have to cancel our Winter Festival.
We’re getting in touch with everyone who has booked stalls or tickets to let them know.
If you know anyone who was going to pop in, please tell them that it’s no longer happening. Thank you.
