Our fourth Halloween Hoedown. A magical combination of Fire,

Spectacle,Food, Costumes, Games, Music, Stories and, of course,


This year we are lucky to have sponsorship from Leisure in the

Community and Durham County Council to bring some extra

special additions to our celebration.

Community groups from across East Durham are coming together at the

Halloween Hoedown to share with us their ghost stories. Inspired by

Sarah Waters’ The Little Stranger, this year’s Durham Book Festival Big Read,

also currently on general release in cinemas, participants have been working

with writer Anna Woodford and Charlie Darby-Villiers conjuring up haunting

tales to share round the campfire.  Groups have also been working with

artists from The Barn, creating a willow lantern installation to set a suitably

eerie atmosphere!

In the summer of 2017 the Barn hosted a Gyspy Jazz day facilitated

by local heroes Emma Fisk and James Birkett attended by 20 musicians from beginners to advanced.

It was a roaring success.
