Museums Northumberland presents ‘Northumberland Folk’, a series of four new exhibitions by illustrator Jonny Hannah. Discover some of Northumberland’s strangest stories and most curious characters through Jonny’s extraordinary paintings and prints.
The vast array of Northumbrian stories you will see illustrated in the exhibitions have been drawn from our museum collections, inspired by our heritage buildings and contributed to the project by members of our communities.
This visual ballad from the borderland delves into Northumbrian piping lore and delights in some of Morpeth’s local legends.
Morpeth Chantry Bagpipe Museum founder William Cocks presides over proceedings with his skeletal companion, and the illustrated ensemble includes artists and wizards, wonder women and rogues.
And if you’re inspired to take a little bit of Northumberland Folk home, you can buy original pieces of artwork, limited edition prints and gifts in our online shop.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE MORPETH BAGPIPE MUSEUM IS CLOSED ON SUNDAYS BUT OPEN EVERY OTHER DAY, FROM 9.30AM TO 5PM
