Peace Journey - Peace Dawn

Hexham Together for Ukraine are hosting a two-part Peace Journey, inviting our local community to reflect on the devastating impact of war, and urging us to join our voices for the cause of peace as we mark the second anniversary of the beginning of the war in Ukraine on 24 February.

The Peace Journey begins with a Peace Night on the evening of Friday, 23 February (7.30pm): a collaboration with Skimstone Arts, with music, performance and visual art. The following morning (Saturday, 24 February, 7.30am), participants will gather at the bandstand, walking in silence to the top of the hill in Sele Park to welcome the new day: Peace Dawn. After the walk, all are invited into the Abbey for a community breakfast.

Both parts of the Peace Journey (including the breakfast!) are free, though booking is required. Tickets for this event are available by clicking the link below.


Price: FREE

When: Saturday, February 24, 2024 - 07:30 to 09:00
