About The Hearth


The Hearth is a hub for arts, music, heritage and hospitality, working together with Horsley Village Church for the benefit of the community.

The Hearth is situated in Horsley in the Tyne Valley, Northumberland, an area rich in history. Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site is just up the road.

The eight working art studios, café and community hall are situated in the restored early 17th century manse, with its wattle and daub walls.

The Victorian gothic revival Horsley Village Church has a fascinating history which dates back to the 17th Century. The church was involved in setting up the Hearth Project which aims to bring the local and wider community together through a varied programme of regular creative participation.

There are art classes and courses, regular musical evenings and children’s activities. During the year the Hearth holds several themed open studios events.
