This Liberty: Matt Stokes & Richard Dawson

Hexham Old Gaol

Hexham Old Gaol and some of its historical inmates are the inspiration behind a new film installation featuring modern-day ballads created by North East-based artist Matt Stokes in collaboration with musician Richard Dawson.
Drawing from traditional border ballads, which were typically sung unaccompanied and used to tell stories, This Liberty consists of five new songs, each telling the story of a different character associated with the 687-year-old building.
Visitors to Hexham Old Gaol, now a Museum and one of four managed by the Woodhorn
Charitable Trust, will be able to see the ballads performed within a cinematic film and audio presentation. This Liberty will be on show from Tuesday, August 22 (until October 31)
